Sweet pea had her first tea party today! She had blast eating pretty cookies and sipping pretend tea. Her brothers even joined in on the fun. :)
I made Sweet pea a cross over dress out of the Nicey Jane fabric from Heather Bailey. I used the polka dot fabric to make two rows of ruffles on the bottom of the dress, the ruffles go all the way to back of the dress. I made the ruffles by cutting the fabric 2" wide and surge the teh raw edes of the fabric. The buttons are covered with the pink polka dot fabric.
" would you like a cookie?"
I got the cookie recipe from Girl.Inspired. (did I mention that this is one of my favorite blogs?!?)
Sweet pea "helped" make the cookies. This was the first time we made cookie together as Mother and daughter. :) No she didn't help very much but it was fun for the two of us!
Here is the bloomers under her dress. It was made with the ploka dot fabric and I used the flower fabric to make the ruffles on the back.
This dress was a lot of fun to make, I just love making ruffles with my serger! It will be perfect for the hot weather to come (it is going to be in the 80s tommorrow!).
