Sewing: Geranium Dress

So...looks like my last post was almost a year ago! Yikes. Well, I've been pretty busy since then. This little man joined our family in October and this pregnancy was pretty rough so I lost my motivation to cook, bake, sew and blog. But he is here and we are in love!

I'm back in the kitchen but by the time I get dinner on the table, the lighting is terrible and I have forgotten to take pictures of the food! Sewing has been a lot of fun for me and something I can accomplish during naps here and there. So, instead of food here is a dress I recently finished sewing for Miette. I used the Geranium dress pattern created by Made by Rae.

I was inspired by You & Mie to use this eyelet fabric that I purchased awhile ago. And I love how it turned out! The bodice is a 4T and the skirt is a 3T. I love this pattern. There are so many variations and it came together so quick and was very simple. I'm already working on a few that will be gifts!

 Back, with buttons.

 How to keep the model entertained? Washi tape, of course!

 She loves pockets. So here she is doing a little dance showing me her pockets.
Can't wait to show you the other versions I'm making!
