the thanksgiving dress


I made this dress for Scarlet a few weeks ago anticipating November might be hectic. I love when I am on top of things.

I knew I wanted to make this Oliver + S pattern again since I loved making the first one which she wore for her 1st birthday.

I paired two fine whale corduroy fabrics together. The top one is from Joann's and not what I originally had in mind. I had planned on a lighter shade in velvet but the one I had was upholstery weight. Well, you know that wasn't going to work. The bottom is this gorgeous Liberty of London fabric I've had for about a year.

Well, I think my 'Plum Pudding' is going to love her dress. I'm so glad we are in the stage where I still get to pick out her clothes and am crossing my fingers she continues to like 'my style' until she is out of the house. I can dream
