Kidswear: Birthday Dresses

Birthday Dresses

This summer was a busy one for us, especially towards the end of July/beginning of August because both of my girls had a birthday!

Birthday Dresses

Their birthdays are only 4 days apart, so we celebrated them together this year with miss E turning 1 and miss J turning 5. We found out we were going to be in Virginia during that time, so I planned a fun party for them at a farm. I saw the cute farm fabric at a fabric store and knew it had to be made into dresses for them. The above dress was miss E’s and I just kind of winged it.

Then for miss J, I used the Out for Lunch Dress pattern and added a little apron to the front.

I was so pleased with how it turned out.

I wasn’t able to get a decent pic of them together standing still on the day of the party, so we took these a few days later.

The next few days I will be sharing more about their party and all that good stuff.

Oh, and because I’m sure someone might want to know, the sheep and bunny fabric are from the Modern Whimsy by Laurie Wisbrun collection. I forget what the pink fabric on top of J’s dress is and then the striped fabric is some I had from a yard sale. Then I used linen for the rest.
Have a great day!

      I just made it up and use her clothing for sizing.The top is lined and the front top is two pieces, overlapped, with button holes for the buttons to open up if hard to get over head (which wasn’t a problem though). The bottom is just double the width of the top and then gathered :)
