When I saw this beautiful fabric from Denyse Schmidt's newest line at Joann's, Sugar Creek, I knew it would make the prettiest dress for Ava and I had a coupon, so it was a done deal. I started it right away, but then got stuck on what to use for my coordinating print and how to embellish the top. I overwhelmed myself so much that I ended up putting it aside. Last weekend we had a big family gathering, so the dress got finished up so she could have something cute to wear.
I think it turned out adorable! I bought the pattern off Etsy from Growing Up With Charissa.
This morning Ava was amazingly willing to get dressed up again and let me take some pictures....so I moved quickly!
This is about the best shot I got of the top of the dress, embellished with polka dot fabric, white ric-rac and pretty little buttons, which are Riley Blake and sold at Sew Deerly Loved on Etsy.
Here's a few more I took:
I know....generally she looks pretty sweet and she acts all shy around other people. And she does have her sweet moments....
But trust me, this girl is FULL. OF. IT!
