A dress for Alice

Even though Alice is two, I'm still able to dress her, really, does she have a choice. With a name like Alice, she was always going to be girly and sweet.

Don't worry, she gets plenty of time to wear short's and pinnies around on the farm. But she isn't a tomboy, by far.

A childs name say's something about them, don't you think?

My eldest Jim, say's solid, earthy and no fuss, just like Jim. People ask is it short for James, and it isn't. James to me has such a different meaning.

My youngest boy Flynn, say's flamboyant, fiesty, I'm here!.

What does your childrens name say about them?




Back to the dress, lovely lilac spotted voile, with a square smocked yoke. This is the first time I've done the traditional square yoke.


Pin tucks and lace adorn the hemline, I figure that pintucks are a sneaky way to let down the hem as she grows.


Oh yes, my clever one can wink, on cue......

Nice work on the dress! Simply beautiful..just like your daughter! :)

So glad I stumbled on to your blog...as for the names. My oldest Amelia is a bit of a perfectionist, while my son Miles is reeeeaaalllly laid back..I've often thought their names were perfect! ha!

Beautiful dresses. My Ella (4) loves to wear her smocked dress that I make. Ella actually only wears dresses, she knows to put on a play dress or an 'out' dress. Alice is just adorable. I think I used the same pattern for Ella's first coat!
