I love that I made this dress a year ago, and it still fits her as a tunic. Not that she will wear it. It's missing the required pockets.
Dang, I was really, really hoping that I would get to dress her for a little bit longer, but I'm going to have to give it up. She's even starting to not like the flowers in her hair, instead demand the little store bought bows and plastic barrettes. Must breath evenly. Must not make big deal out of this. Must let daughter dress herself.
Anyway, I love this recent picture of her and David. She loves to ham it up for the camera now, and did the folding arms, lean against the fence thing herself.

Another reversible dress--this one fits Aubrey. I hope.
I sized down the pattern I used to make the reversible dress and made one for Aubriana today. She would model it for you, but she is sick (fever and fatigue is all so far) and so she's been doing this all day:She's content at the moment, so I'm not going to even go near asking her to put on a new dress. Poor baby.
One side. This striped fabric came from my great-great grandma's stash. I still have quite a few yards left.
A close-up of the bow:
The other side, which has to be some of my favorite fabric ever. Picked it up a while ago--I'm pretty sure from Hancock, although it might have been Jo-Ann's.
The bodice, so you can see the pattern on the fabric better:The bow:I can't wait to see it on her! I love this pattern. It whips up so quickly (I think I spent about 2 hours on it this morning, between interruptions and sewing machine problems).
Hey, don't forget, there are still a few more days to enter the bracelet give away! Your odds are still really, really good! Just leave me a comment. Couldn't be more simple. Seriously. Go go it!
