Hello Sugar!

Linking up again today with Andrea over at The Train to Crazy, and Make it wear it Thursday!

Lendee has always been my sweets eater and I would say "hey sugar baby" to her all the time.  Well I guess it kinda stuck with her (she doesn't forget a thing, plus she will repeat anything everything she hears!  I dropped her off at the babysitter one day and she spouted off "hello sugar".  Well it has become her official greeting, yes my child loves attention. 

I ordered some fabric and knew it would be perfect for a little dress for my verbal little baby!

I drafted the bodice from a shirt that fits her well.  and cut out two rectangles off a different pattern for the skirt.  I felt like the bottom of the skirt needed a bit of color so I cut 4 strips of coordinating fabric, sewed them together ( this was fabric from my boo boo order, so I only had a fat quarter square of each piece).  I had some coral ribbed knit that matched perfectly for the binding.

I was happy with the way it turned out. 

 A simple pearl button to close the back.... buttonholes on ribbed knit, grrrrr.  it took a little finagling.
Perfect for twirling.  The skirt is gathered enough to twirl, but not show of her "bloomers".
