Gracie's First B'Day Dress ~ Children's Clothes

We found this darling little pattern of a pedal sun dress and when Stephanie saw it she wanted to make a dress for Gracie's first Birthday.  It is so fitting since her birthday falls in mid July, when it is so hot here in
Southern California.

Now... the trend for your baby's first birthday is the tutu and the matching top that would say (Gracie is 1) on it.  These are truly cute and adorable, but we wanted something a little more special than what to norm is in the baby world today! 

So we set out to find some ladybug fabric.  Ladybugs is going to be the theme for Gracie's first Birthday.  After looking everywhere for ladybug fabric we didn't see anything that we liked, or that seemed fitting for our little ladybug.  So we chose fabric that completed each other and had a whimsical feel also.

I have these darling ladybug embroidery designs that we decided to use to make this birthday dress real special.  These little ladybugs will also add to the whimsical feel.

This is Stephanie's second sewing project, she is doing very well.   I think this is about as special as you can get... making your own daughters birthday dress.  

Stephanie said, that she is ready for her next sewing project!
