Vintage Inspired Babydoll Dress

** A quick reminder that the Charlie Dress pattern giveaway ends tonight at midnight EST!! Make sure to enter here**
Well I’m up to it again…another dress for A! I sewed up another Bohemian Babydoll by Elegance and Elephants. For this one I opted for a vintage/country chic feel to it. Honestly, I couldn’t pass up this fabric when I went in to my local quilt shop and kind of just went with it. 

Although I didn’t want to give it too country a feel, so I opted for the grey bodice to help modernize the look of it a bit. I’m pretty happy with how this one turned out. A loves it, even though it’s not full out pink. I’m guessing the flowers are doing it for her!

I can’t believe how big this girl is getting. It feels like she’s grown like a freaking weed for the past two month and hasn’t stopped. I’ve had this dress cut out since the first one I made, so this one is also a size 5. I still think next time I’ll do the size 5, but with a size 6 length…Why does she grow?!?

Again, I’m super pleased with the pattern…it took me a little while longer then usual to complete, and I find my results aren’t as good as the last time…but I did have my hand in a partial cast when I decided to finally sew it up, so it was a little cumbersome… Oh well, A loves it, and doesn’t seem to notice the little details that are bugging me! haha.

So before I forget, a quick fabric recap! The flower fabric is Bouquet in Marigold for Flea Market Fancy – Legacy Collection by Free Spirit. You can find some at this etsy shop here AND it’s on sale 🙂 Now the grey is just a basic grey cotton that I grabbed out of the solids section at the quilt shop. But if you’re wondering about the tone, it matches the grey in the leafage perfectly! 

Now even though she’s getting big, apparently this independent girl still likes to cuddle…or at least she does when she wants to finish up pictures. What a suck 😉 Well, that’s been a lot of girl sewing lately, so now I’ve got to get to these boys, hopefully in the next couple of weeks I can get this all evened out. Now exit, stage left!
