Lovely tree climbing dress

 About a year ago, I found a dress pattern that I fell in love with.  I knew exactly what I wanted to use it for and what fabrics in my stash I wanted to use.

We have had our daughters pictures done by a professional for birth, 6 months, 1 year, 2 year and plan to keep doing it through high school.  When Eleanor turned one, we knew we didn't want to go some store that also has a photo studio (we did it once and wasn't happy with what we got for the price).  So I happen to see an acquaintance or friend of a friend was an amazing photographer.  She was also having a sale, yay!

So we decided to hire her and we keep hiring her and we plan to for a long, long time.

So this is the dress I made with that pattern.  Fawn of Lamore Photography is our go to photographer.  and she took these lovely pictures of Eleanor shortly after she turned two.

I went through the CD she gave us again, hoping she got one that showed more of the dress, but didn't see any so you will be stuck with one taken by my husband and I.

It is hard to see, but the ruffles and sash were made with the most adorable vintage fabric.  It has ladybugs, butterflies, and roses all over it!

Such a silly little girl!


  1. I really love that dress so cute :)
    Can I just say that while the font you are using on your blog is pretty it is really hard to read.
    I've had a look around and your work is lovely :)

    1. Thank you! I never thought anyone would ever read it! I'll try to figure out how to make it happier!

  2. Thanks so much for entering your darling dress into Season 4.....I think it is so perfect in your pictures. And the fabric is darling!

    We hope you will continue to sew along...your sewing is beautiful!

    1. Thank you! As long as the girlies let me, I hope to sew along.


Thank you so much for commenting! I read every one (including those ridiculous spam ones) and love hearing what you think!
