We have a Birthday party this Friday for my Sophia's friends Sophia and Sophia. Yes, you read that correct they all three are named Sophia.
I knew right away I wanted to make the girls dresses as the gift. What little girl does not love a new dress? Besides a while back I had bought a few new patterns and bookmarked some tutorials on the web, so this would be the perfect opportunity to try them out.
I scored at Joann's on the fabric. I spotted the lavender floral in the clearance section which also happened to be an extra 50% off!!!!! It is "Ribbon Dance" Stonehill Collection by Donna Wilder. The green is called "Topsy Turvy" from the same collection.
The first dress I used New Look 6960 Size 3. Pretty easy pattern for the most part except the collar. I feel the directions were not very clear and I had to wing it during this step. The pattern called for a zipper which I was excited as it was my first one! I must say I love the way it turned out and my Sophia keeps asking for one of her own.
The second dress is a Pillowcase dress. I was inspired by this dress that Anneliese created for her daughters. It is one of the most simple dresses to make and I learned how to sew a french seam. I absolutely love the big bow!
