The She She Dress

Here is a cute little dress that I sewed for Sophia.  For those of you who don't know, she calls herself "She-She."  So I named this dress the "She She Dress."
I really, really love the fabric of this dress.  It is called "Small Gatherings" in sea by Anna Maria Horner.  I kept the lines of the dress very simple so that it wouldn't distract from the fabric and I am very happy with how it turned out.  

 I also like this dress for practical reasons.  It is very comfy and will make a great all purpose playdress all year long.  In the summer she can wear it alone.  And in the fall it will look great layered with a denim jacket, leggings and boots.
The other great thing is that this is one of those dresses that will grow with her.  She can wear it now as a dress and eventually it can be worn as a peasant style tunic or shirt.  You gotta love that!

Well, thanks for reading!!  And yes, that is a garden gnome in my yard!!
