hello holly hobby

every once in a while i get to make a custom dress for someone i know. it's so much easier to sew for someone you know. as i was making this dress for a dear friend, i would hold it up for richie after each step and say, "does it look like mandy?" to which he would reply, "totally." (and he thinks he has no fashion sense.)
my only real instructions were to make it look like this picture. no stress- until i started analyzing every detail and wondering what she really meant when she wanted me to copy the picture. i'm sure i drove her crazy with all my questions. but i am in love with all the fabric she found! the blue and white floral is a moda-made in england print, and oh so gorgeous up close. anyway, this is the final result- cute on a clothesline, but oh so much cuter on the adorable baby! she wore it for a baby contest and totally should have won. what a doll.

This dress is absolutely darling. I am very impressed with your skills! And, the baby is darling as well!

I love how your darling clothes bring out the baby in, well, the babies that wear them! That element is sadly missing from so many baby and toddler clothes today.
