September 2017 Dress of the Month

I’ve decided to start featuring one little girl’s dress each month.  Mainly, I need to limit myself to making ONE dress a month for my daughter, instead of ten.  Eventually I hope to feature the Dress of the Month in my Etsy shop. 

This month I made the Malina dress from  Bonnie Blue Designs.  My mom bought the pattern for me from a local quilt shop when she last visited. (Thanks Mom!) 

It’s an adorable dress with a high yoke, contrast box pleats, and cap sleeves.  I did find the instructions a little harder to follow, and they used some older construction methods that I thought were cumbersome.  I wouldn’t recommended it to a brand-new sewist, but it still made a lovely dress! I got cute owl fabric and red gingham from Hobby Lobby.  It’s perfect for September and sweet Baby Girl looks absolutely adorable!
