The next Daddy Daughter Banquet Dress....

I hadn't realized Butterick's Spring patterns were available until today. I haven't really tackled my Winter sewing yet and now I have to think about Spring patterns. Geesh---that's how it is every year! The seasons move fast. Well while looking through a few I stumbled across this little girl's dress Butterick 5845.  I think my jaw hit the floor. It's ABSOLUTELY a showstopper! I love the front, the gathered waist and the lil' train in the back.  I immediately thought about the upcoming Daddy/Daughter Banquet that's held at my church each year. My daughter has gone with her dad for the last 2 years and I always make her dress.  You may recall her first dress and the one from last year. Each year there's a different theme for the banquet. I don't know what this upcoming  year's theme is (or the date---think it's Feb or March) but I hope this dress fits into it. If so I hope to make this in a bright color and do some small tweaks to it to make it my own (probably lower the front hemline and add more drama to the tulle underskirt. Anyway I'll keep you guys posted.

  3. I've been meaning to comment for a while now, but one of the pics from last year compelled me to do the doggone thing. The 3 "big girls" (the double Ks and their younger sister C) are my nieces! You had a picture with their parents (my sister-in-law and my brother) a few months ago, in an article about how you began sewing; in the picture, you were wearing the first dress you'd made. It is truly a small world!
