The Perfect Dress

I got a little sidetracked from starting my second JCrew coat. This is what I have been working on instead. I cannot say enough about how simple, easy, and versatile this pattern is. It really is the perfect dress.

Ok, approximately three years from now we need a wedding invite so baby L can wear her dress. OK, any special event will do. This one is definitely my favorite. I used metallic linen and added the ruffle.

this is just to show the sheen a little bit better.


because every girl needs a red dress...even little girls


denim version. Aren't the pockets cute?

Stay tuned for more of my OCD adventure. I've got two more in the works. Purple with a jeweled neckline and a Tuxedo version. Can't wait until my baby is three because that is the size of these dresses. I guess she'll already have her church wardrobe.
