Simplicity 2459 - Brown polka dot baby dress
Here is a little dress for Rachel. She's 2. Trying to get a 2 year old to stand still so you can capture the different design elements of her new dress is hard.
First she wants to dance.
Then she wants to wander away.
She spots something on the ground that peeks her interest. Fine, maybe I'll get a good shot of the back this way.
Or not. Taking a picture of the back of something on a toddler is just about impossible.
Aaaand, I give up.
This dress is the combined effort of my mom (who was in town last week) and me. She did all the major sewing, I finished up the details. I've made this pattern before in overall form. This time around we made the small for the width and the biggest size for the length. It seemed a little short, so a solid band was added to the bottom. The fabrics are thin whale corduroy, both from JoAnn's.
