Miss Sammy wearing Vogue 8060

Do you know how hard it is to get a 15 month old baby girl to stand still and pose? Dayum near impossible! We ended up bribing her with a Twizzler and then I still only got a couple of usable pictures! So you don't have to worry there won't be a boatload of "cute" baby pictures to ooooohhhh and aaaahhhhh over! *LOL*

Pictures first ~

Sammy's Version of the Milly Dress ~


The Yellow Seersucker Dress ~

Can't believe we got a back shot!

Black Denim with Lace Trim ~

Denim Pinstripe Dress with Pink Floral Accent ~
This was how most of the pictures ended up!
It was a challenge to say the least!!!


The Denim Floral Dress ~

A little more about the pattern, etc. ~
If you look at the pattern envelope you will see that I basically did with this little girls' pattern what I do with my own - use it as a blueprint and get all creative on it. None of my versions are included in the pattern envelope - the dresses are all flights of my imagination and internet research. 

The original pattern has a button band on the back - I totally disregarded that. I added invisible zippers, button and loop closures, a shoulder button closure and openings in the front neckline. I omitted the overlay pictured on the pattern envelope and used different types of embellishments to enhance the dress.

I also changed the silhouette on the pattern by folding it down and altering. I guess I should have made pattern pieces but Miss Sammy is 15 months old and will be a totally different size in a couple of months. It was just not worth the effort to me.

Lastly, Miss Lena was mighty jealous of her sister's new pieces so she tried a few on.  This was very enlightening because except for length, they are able to wear the exact same size! This will make sewing garments for Miss Lena so much easier!

I will be working on little girl dresses for a little longer since it's now Miss Lena's turn! Again if little girls outfits bore you I will be back to sewing for me shortly.

Parting Shots ~
I posted this shot to Instagram but loved it so much that I wanted to share it here. BTW, most of the dresses were shared on my Instagram account. If you're not following me already, you should! I usually sneak peek there first before writing blog posts here.



Finally a shot of all ten dresses I made for Sammy all lined up...




...as always more later!

  7. What a a precious wardrobe you made Miss Sammy! She is darling. A simple ALine can be switched out so many ways and is almost the only pattern you need for a sweety little girl. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with for Lena. Isn't it amazing how quickly they work up?

  9. They are so cute on a real model! I guess it helps to have an adorable model to work with. ;)

  10. Awww, these are too cute! And yes, OMG, the pain of shooting kids! When they're a little older, showing them the picture preview helps a lot, but at 15 months, that doesn't really work yet.

  11. Very cute. I don't have any girls to sew for. So your grands are my "girl fix" for the day. Being surrounded by men who don't care about clothes is no fun. And all my local friends have girls who are grown. Thanks for sharing!

  14. Gorgeous model --I especially love the one where she's holding on to Mommy's leg. Children at that age hate posing for pictures. My grandson is the same way. I love these posts - can't wait to see Lena's fashion show.

  24. I can imagine how much fun it was to sew little girl dresses. No fitting issues and a chance to be creative with trims and remnants of favorite fabrics. She looks adorable in all of them.

  27. So adorable! Those days are not very far behind me. In fact I find my 3 year old is only marginally easier to photograph. I think you did exceptionally well with the photos. And perfect use of those little remnants.
