kcwc spring 2011: day 2

well, i tackled the ruffle dress i’ve been wanting to make for over a year (from “carefree clothes for girls”), but it’s not quite done yet.  turns out i probably should head to bed earlier then midnight when there’s a chance that my 5-month-old may decide to give me a 4:45am “i’m hungry mama!” wake up call like he did this morning.  i’m getting a little blinky and i don’t want to make dumb mistakes,  so i’m calling it a night.  sneak peek:

to be continued tomorrow…

    Oh I love that book! I checked it out last summer from the library and never got around to making anything out if it. You’ve inspired me to go get it again. Your dress is looking darling. I love your fabric choices. I love how simple and sweet all those patterns are…such a nice change from sparkly princess clothes you see at the store.

      Go for it, especially if your little gal is a little bigger than mine is – my dry fit on Em made me chop an inch off the bottom hem and wonder it it’ll work just yet…but I’LL MAKE IT WORK! 🙂 Agree about sparkly princess clothes. One of the main reasons I started sewing was to avoid those.

    Just gorgeous! I can’t wait to see the rest.
    I have that book too. It is so lovely but my big girl is too big for teh sizes and my small girl too small. Maybe next summer I will make a few things.
