Polka Dot Party Frock

June 24, 2008

My littlest little baby has just turned one. I just can't believe it. It's so strange how they go from baby to toddler in just a year's time. For her birthday, I had wanted to sew this dress in time for the little party we had on Sunday but got so busy with the darn cake that I had none to spare for the frock. But that didn't mean I was going to turn my back on this polka dotted piece. The material used is very sheer like chiffon but probably more along the lines of rayon. I finished the edges by binding them in brown thread. I had wanted to use a modern blue and green floral pattern but had to settle for what I could find.

We are still having a double birthday bash for both girls in July. I suppose she can wear it then....unless I sew a new, more exciting dress by then. Oh whatever, it was fun taking the photo....aaaand at least she didn't get double chocolate fudge birthday cake all over it.

How adorably fun! I LOVE going all out for the kiddos birthday. I also did green & brown for my little one's 1st bday last year since his room is in those colors. I love the vintage yet mod feel in this dress. AND, pray-tell where did you get OR how did you make that perfectly adorable party hat????????? :)

p.s. THANKS for visiting my blog. I thought I found a good thing in grosgrain...until I hit the mother-load in TUMTUM tree!!! So glad I have found you...and that we're "friends!" :) I shall be back!

could you tell me how you finished the edges on the dress? did you do it with a serger? I hope not considering I don't own a serger. I love the look of the edges but I'm clueless on how to do it. Any advice would be appreciated.
