a birdie dress

This is a small raglan sleeved peasant style dress for Kate, who needed a few "not fancy" dresses:


Birds Dress


And I made her a fantastic little pink dress from my still-favorite simplicity girls dress pattern, using pink Swing Toss from Nicey Jane (OMG, gorgous- I wish I was young enough to wear a whole dress made out of this print!!) ... but I forgot to take the picture of it off my camera. It will show up here soonish.

In the meantime, I'm still trying to pack up my sewing room. Yikes... I had NO IDEA how much fabric I owned. I need to do a bit of serious winnowing down, or we will never fit into the new apartment. ;)

Way cute!! This is my favorite girlie dress pattern, too! I've made it at least 5 times, and have taught 3 friends to sew with this pattern. Gotta love that!

That dress is so sweet! I love the skirt print. Where did you find it?

The bird print is from The City Quilter- from about a year ago. They might still have it. :)
