A Dress For My Daughter

A couple of weeks ago, I left a comment over at Audrey's, hoping to win a new handmade jumper for Eliana. And guess what? I did!

Isn't it beautiful?

Audrey has seven children; five boys and two girls (one of which was born less than three months ago!), and she still finds time to run a small online boutique, called Sewing the Seams of Love, for which she sews modest clothing for women, young girls, and toddlers. If you are like me, and have no sewing capabilities whatsoever, you will be excited to find jumpers, dresses, even skirts (try finding skirts for your toddler!), plus bloomers to go underneath the pretty dresses!

Audrey will let you choose the fabric for most of the dresses, and this month, until the twenty-fifth, you will receive four dollars off the jumpers, sizes one through thirteen! Audrey will choose the spring pattern for you on this special offer.

So, thank you, Audrey, for the beautiful dress. My next order will include a pair of bloomers, for a little girl who likes to hold out her skirt to show it off!

a beautiful dress on a beautiful little girl
how old is she???
"for a little girl who likes to hold out her skirt to show it off!" how cute :)

Me said...

Love the fabric - perfectly sweet...I've always felt that a few good denim diaper covers are handy as so few dresses come with them anymore and the denim is so durable.

What a darling.
The dress fits perfectly!!

The dress is beautiful, especially on your pretty little baby. I don't know what it is with little girls lifting their skirts/dresses up - mine always did it too. It did stop around age two, though. : )

what a darling dress! and sounds like a wonderful boutique. i have no sewing skills, either. my mom made a lot of our dresses and clothes when we were young, but the skill didn't get passed on to me.

Elise, don't you just want to snatch her up and kiss her? I'm sure you do this often!!

I'm going to visit Audreys as soon as I get a few minutes.

That is beautiful! I will have to visit her site as I'm looking for some stuff for my oldest daughter. Thanks for sharing your lovely little girl and her new dress with us. :0)
