My good friend, Catie gave me this really pretty vintage botanical print that her mom had saved for a long time- her mother told her it is probably 40 years old. Wowzers! I contemplated making a bunch of bibs or something with it. The fabric (which I found here on etsy) is divided into all these panels- I think it was intended for easy pillow making?
But, because I’m totally predictable, I made a dress.
Another Charlie, size 3, fully lined.
I used cotton couture (obvi) in gold for the flounce, and a cool gold button at the back closure.
Not much more to say.
Other than that I just love this one on Corinne.
But I think she’s done with me.

Genius. Wish I had something to give you. Wedding dress? Old denim?
Taylor, she needs some old denim, preferably stonewashed. Lol!
Okay I don’t know what it is about these photos or this dress in particular, but I just want to give Coco a huge squeeze! I think she reminds me of Em at her age. DON’T MAKE ME CRY!!!
Love the dress.
There is nothing “yawn” about this! Adorable dress 🙂
This is simply the best!
Love it! And that last photo….ahhhh, priceless. This is such a beautiful combo, that botanical print…!!!
