This time, for her annual birthday dress, I made a Geranium, in a mermaid print reminiscent of, although much pinker than, her third birthday dress.
Sarah Jane Out to Sea in Mermaid Play (Blossom Pink).
(I sewed the lining and sleeve pieces together on their outside edge, right sides together, with a small seam allowance, then turned and pressed, making sure to roll the lining side under a smidge so it doesn't show on the main side of the sleeve.)
again to stick to 5 guests for turning 5 (not including little siblings). It ended up being 6 friends but a pair of them are twins so I let it slide. ;)
p.s. As my instagram followers might have noticed, I made this dress last month during Kids Clothes Week (I could only participate for half the week because we went to New York for the weekend—for Vampire Weekend at Roseland Ballroom!).
Anyway, as seen on instagram, I actually made bias tape of the Kona Candy Pink to put in the bodice and dress seam and totally forgot to sew it in. Would have been a nice touch but didn't care enough to pick it apart. Let's keep sewing fun!
