Today was school registration day for the three youngest so Sweet pea was able to wear one of her new dresses over to school. (Prince C wore his smore Sketchbook shirt with navy shorts). She chose her favorite Stella, her Queen of hearts Alice in Wonderland version. I am nuts over the new versions of the Alice in Wonderland movies. It's many the costumes. I would love to try and sew many of the wardrobe up but settled for this dress for now. ;)
The pattern is the Stella from Izzy and Ivy with a skirt mod I made to it after seeing all of Jessica's dress. The wonderful part about this pattern is that each fabric I had only one yard of it and made this with a few left over scraps to go into my Children's Library quilt blocks. (A year long sew along I am in, I will share that here soon as I catch up!!) The funny thing about this dress is that Sweet pea was not sold on the fabric choice until the dress was done. She sure has a mind of her now!
We both love the fit of the Stella. She said it is very comfortable and pretty. I made two already and have plans for at least two more for this autumn to be made. One will be shirt with a few mods made to it. I will share a tutorial when I have it all made on how to!
This dress even has a lovely sash for my girly girl. All the gold on both dress fabrics and hem band/sashing is metallic. Perfect for the Queen of Hearts.
I still cannot believe that this little girl will be starting second grade here within the month. The years have flow by and I am sure they will not slow down any time soon. I will try to hold on to her a little more tightly and savor the time.
You can find the Stella pattern over on the Izzy and Ivy Etsy shop here. I highly recommend all of her patterns!
