I bought the supplies to make my niece a couple birthday dresses last night. I completely and totally chickened out on the dress with the zipper. I got a very similar pattern with a square neckline and some buttons at the back instead. Buttons are easier. I am a wuss.
Dress number one:
And dress number two:
I got home and realized that these little dresses for my niece would be perfect with matching purses. My mother-in-law brought me over The Owl & the Pussycat purse pattern by Melly & Me (the makers of that giraffe that shows up here frequently)quite awhile ago, and I have yet to make them. I am hoping to have enough left over of the bird fabric to make the owl, and enough of the hippie paisley to make the pussycat. Wouldn't that be so cute? I am so glad that I bought a little extra of each when I went shopping.
