the second blue dress

First, here is my niece in her blue dress:

I had forgotten that kids in diapers have baggy bottoms- and the drop waist kind of gets "caught" on the diaper! Funny looking, indeed. The dress is actually not quite as big as I thought it was going to be, but she had a few tshirts on underneath.

And this morning I finished up Kate's matching dress. I held off putting any velvet ribbon on it so that it could be machine washed. Instead I found a satin ribbon bow tacked up on my bulletin board, so I stitched that onto the dress. You can't really see it, but I added a few small gathers in the skirt directly under the bow.

The dresses are very pretty and so different, despite using the same fabric.
