As I’m sure you know, Quilt Market was in Portland last weekend. Although I wasn’t there myself, it was fun to see all the Instagram photos popping up of all the festivities throughout the weekend. I did make this little dress though that did make it to Market.
One of my pattern distributors, Creative Sewing & Smocking, asked to borrow a Polly Peasant Dress to display in their booth, and rather than send them a sample I had on hand, I wanted to make a new one. After all, Lola can always use a new dress, right?
The Tula Pink fabric was actually a happy accident that I received from the sweet Robin at Whimbrella’s Attic on Etsy, but it worked out perfectly for this project. The sailboat pocket fabric also came from Robin’s shop, and she has a great selection of fun prints.
Modelling can be tough sometimes…
Can you believe that Lola turned one this month?! I still can’t. I also can’t believe that I deleted all of her birthday photos from my camera before putting them on the computer. The one time of year that I actually cleared my entire memory card at once. We didn’t do anything fancy, just had cake with our Joel and the boys, but I’m still pretty sad about it. Maybe it’s a good excuse to make another cake?
I made a size 12-18m dress, and as Lola is still way below the growth charts for her age, she has a lot of room to grow into it which will be great. Now we just need to work on the growing part :).
