Ellis's Party Dress

Today I pulled a marathon sewing day with Jenny.  Jenny is my daughter's friend and co-worker and she wants me to be her crafty mom, or "mam" as they call me.  :o)  Jenny is also the mom of two adorable little girls, one is Kylie, the cutest flower girl ever shown in this post at my daughter's wedding.  The other one is Ellis and she's turning one year old. 

Jenny asked if I could help her with some sewing and one was the birthday dress.  She had the dress Kylie wore for her first birthday so we measured and used that one for a pattern.  The colors of the party are obviously pink and grey so the party girl will be adorable in this little frock.  I was very happy with how it came out since I barely do any garment sewing.

Here is the back.  The dress was lined.  I could've cut a new lining out of grey but I used the muslin sample I used to see if the pattern I made would work.  I can't wait to see Ellis in her dress.  Jenny found a pink diaper cover-up from another dress and it matches perfectly for underneath! 

I will share a picture of Ellis in her dress as soon as I can.  Maybe tomorrow I'll get to sew my quilt project.  :o)
