I hope to get a shot of her wearing this. I love the ruffle! It went together fairly easily, and I really liked how the pattern designer created the bodice pieces along with the full facings. I ended up with nice looking finished insides with very little bulk at the seams.

I hope to get a modeling shot, but this is the Leila & Ben Sweet Dress is 12 months. I added a contrast hem and elastic around the bodice area inside.

Kwik Sew makes a similar pattern for twice the price. Here is a closeup shot to see the fit around the arms. I think it will be great to wear in the summer. The pattern is fully reversible, which means 2 layers of fabric, and adding the lace at the bottom was kinda tricky. I love the front pleats. I may try looking at the Kwik Sew pattern anyway to see if they make theirs non-reversible with maybe just a bodice lining to make it a bit cooler.

I really love how easy this pattern works up! I had some fun with the fabrics this time too! Pattern is Oliver + S Teaparty Sundress. Bonnet is from Fabric by Fabric One Yard Wonders. The set is a little too big at 18 months, but I'm sure she'll grow into it.
