I think my reason for being a bad blogger, and not posting this dress earlier is that Peyton is not into this dress. :( She absolutely will not wear it! She wore it for pictures and now is unwilling to even entertain the notion of wearing it! I'm unsure why; but it is a beautiful dress just hanging in her closet. I don't think I am the only sewing mama this happens to, but it is a bummer.
Here are the details of my dress. I sewed up a size 7 and it fit nicely for the most part, a little snug in the bodice/sleeve area, but I think that is my fault. I didn't do the best job attaching the lining to the sleeves.
I want to try this dress again, I think I'll make a sleeveless version and see if she likes that more. Also I should let her pick the fabric too. We are entering the age where she really wants more of a say in her wardrobe. (Knit clothing seems to be winning right now.)
It is fun to look back at summer she was only missing one tooth, now all 4 are gone in the front! Hope you have a great Friday and are planning some fun fall activities for the weekend.
