Buttercup's New Duds


Well, I was feeling sorry for her, since I was making so many things for her little sister, so I dug out a pattern and all the goodies I got awhile back and finally made this dress.  I was to chicken back then, nervous about actually sewing it.


I am glad I didn't do it back then, because this pattern (sorry to say) was written so poorly I would have ended up crying and would not have attempted to sew again for at least 5 years.


Luckily, having a few dresses under my belt now (lol) I figured out what a mess it was and was able to make it, after forgetting about the instructions.


After seeing how I had a little ribbon left I decided to try and make a bit of a head band for Buttercup too. I just attached some elastic to the ends of the ribbon and sewed on a bow.


I am so glad she likes it. She told me it is a very special princess ballerina dress that she can wear to church and Little Flowers. And apparently for running around the yard, too.


She didn't want to take it off, but then decided since she wanted to wear it to church, she would take it off... 

for now.


  1. CUTE! Good job on your fun sewing projects lately!! FUN FUN FUN! Now, I am wondering - preference... sewing, knitting, crocheting, doodling... a favorite among the fun?

  2. I Love the dress Amy. You did a great job and the headband is a good idea too.

  3. Oh, it's super cute, Amy!! Dress, headband, everything! Great job!

    She looks looks very pleased, indeed. :)

  4. That is an adorable dress! I love it :)

  5. Love the dress and the headband! So cute! I only wish I could sew that well.
