Good morning! I hope everyone had a nice weekend! I was able to get some sewing done while my husband played with the kiddos! The kids’ woodland-themed birthday party is next weekend I wanted to make my daughter a woodland-themed dress. I love sewing for her and often need an excuse to make time for it.
I found the fabric for this dress at our local quilt store. It is Woodland Scene by Timeless Treasures. I used a McCall’s pattern and altered it slightly. I chose to do buttons in the back rather than a zipper. Doing this allowed me to cut the back of the skirt without a center back seam and I just put in a small placket. I also used a pre-made collar I had on hand rather than making one.
My favorite part of the whole dress is definitely the collar. It is a Florence & Eiseman collar I picked up a few years ago from a local fabric store. The collar was so quick to use and I think it really gives the dress a sweet look!
I bought a coordinating green polka dot fabric to make the diaper cover out of. This fabric matches some Easter dress fabric I picked up last week – which means I’ll get to use this diaper cover twice!
I’m really excited for the party this weekend! I did attempt to keep things simple, but in the end I’m an “all-in” kind of person and can’t help but get carried away!
Have a wonderful week!
