The hat will be a free pattern and tutorial that I will have posted on the Riley Blake Designs 'Cutting Corners' blog tomorrow and the big bow dress will be a free pattern and tutorial that I will post here on the blog for you all later this week!
Here's the dress I created for Miss Savannah:
I wanted to make her something that was loose-fitting and comfy for running around and playing, but still had a bit of whimsy.
I thought about adding rick rack in the collar, but opted for pale yellow piping instead due to the bold print in the main fabric.
I decided to do a zipper in the back of this dress. I usually prefer buttons, but I had the urge to do a zipper since it had been awhile since I had put one in a dress. The verdict.........I still prefer buttons.
Here's the dress I created for Miss Matilda (I will share the tutorial for this dress later in the week):
I wanted something really fun for Matilda since she is at such a fun age. I went with a giant over-sized pocket that I embroidered with 'Oh Happy Day' and trimmed with rick rack. I also created a large statement bow for the front of this dress.
I love the huge bow in the front of this dress. And I especially love the fun, striped fabric. Matilda's favorite color is blue, so I went with that for the main body of the dress. The straps are simply pre-gathered eyelet.
And finally, here are some pictures of my little ladies........
So, later this week I will post a tutorial so you can make your own 'Happy Day' Big Bow Dress and tomorrow I will be posting a tutorial and free pattern for this hat on Riley Blake Designs:
I hope you all had a great weekend! Now that I've got these two looks created, I'm off to cut my pattern for something for my little guy.
Have a great week!Pin It
