Bird #1 - A birthday dress for O
For the past two years I've made a little something special for O for her birthday and while many traditions have been pushed aside for the time being thanks to the arrival of this little one
this was one tradition that I wanted to keep. And so I dug through the patterns that I had laying around the house and headed to Joanns for some fabric (since Joanns just so happens to be the only place that sells fabric that's within the three mile radius that I stick to nowadays when I have both kids by myself). I ended up going with some green and white seersucker which is perfect for summer and another attempt at a dress with alternating stripes.
Again I made the stripes on the bodice horizontal and the stripes on the skirt vertical but I also reversed the lining and the outside of the bodice so that the button placket is visible on the outside and I threw in some alternating stripes there as well. And just like my last attempt with alternating stripes, the back of this dress may just be my favorite part of the dress.
Bird #2 - A dress for Vintage May
Of course you can't see some seersucker without thinking of the 1920's right? And perhaps the piping and the vintage buttons add a little vintage flair as well. Perfect for Kristin and Jess's Vintage May.
See, two birds with one stone. Hurray!
