Fall Dress for my daughter...

 I made this dress for Z today!  I used the Lucy pattern by Children's Corner in a size two, and the fabric is from Joanne's.  It seems they always have at least one cute corduroy every fall, and I love this print with the deer, owls, bunnies and mushrooms.  It is perfect for fall.

 The Lucy pattern is my favorite for a simple A-line dress.  I lined it with some bright green Kona cotton for some cute contrast, especially when she is running and kicks up her hem.  I added a peachy orange ribbon to give it a little more interest as well.


The dress took about two hours to make, including cutting out fabric and a quick run to the store for buttons.  I love it with her new fall boots she got for her birthday last week!  I need to make more of these for her this fall.  It has been a while since I have made little dresses!

ADORABLE! That is a really cute corduroy, but I'm a sucker for corduroy =). Agreed, those boots are a great addition!

So cute!!! JoAnn does carry some great corduroy now and then. And the green lining and the boots all make it work!
