Botanical Dress

I know.  Another dress.


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.

  1. 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.
