Norah's birthday dress

One of the fun things about having a girl is getting to make clothes for them, as I am slowly discovering.  It's been hectic around here and I hate to ignore this sweet mellow little gal while her exuberant brother has a big birthday bash filled with friends and fun.  


 I cut into some hoarded  Japanese Kokka fabric for this little reversible apron dress.  It is lined in pink Kona, with some ric rak and an appliqued matryoschka doll on the reverse. A couple vintage buttons from the button jar finish off the shoulders.

The series of photos was taken as Brian was taking a break working on the porch roof. She is all about walking everywhere, now!

Such a sweet dress for our sweet gal!  Now I gotta go windex the door again.  Happy birthday, Norah!

Great job on the dress! And Nora is such a cutie pie. I can't believe she's already walking. Love the photos of her kissing B through the glass!
