Sweets For My Sweet

Last week a box of fabric arrived at my doorstep. I have to stop here and say that I give my husband full credit for not giving me a look that says “More fabric?!” Anyway, it was some stuff that I had ordered awhile ago, and in the box was an adorable cupcake fabric.

As much as I loved the fabric, I knew it wasn’t realistic for someone my age to be seen in something so cutesy. Plus, I only ordered a meter of it which meant either my bottom or top half would be left uncovered, not good. So I found a pattern from my book “Little Girls, Big Style” and made a halter neck dress for Ally.

The ruffles were a pain in the butt as always but she’s really into twirly skirts and dresses at the moment. After my previous dress disasters, I made sure to measure Ally’s chest and match it to the sizes given. The last dress I made was big enough to fit 2 Allys. Lesson learned.

I made a US size 3 which fitted her perfectly
