A Second Dress (Better Than the First?)

Ladybug dress at amyhoodarts.com

The second dress is complete, y’all. And it’s better than the first, because it has inside, hidden pockets.

G likes it better because she likes short sleeves–while I’m wearing a thermal shirt, sweater, and wool socks, she’s running around in short sleeves and no socks at all. I’m happy about the pockets but already know I can do better on the next dress, whenever that happens. (I’m out of jersey knit fabric at the moment.) I keep admiring these dresses, the way the sleeves are sewn into the opening so well, the pleating, the way I did much better hemming the sleeves on the ladybug dress and they don’t flare at all. Another headband was requested, so I whipped that up after these pictures were taken.

New play dresses need twirling pictures. Of course!

    What a great style dress for playing around in. I love it paired with the leggings-it looks so modern and yet so little girl classic.

    I am never in bare feet this time of year. My toes are always cold! The sweater comes off only if I’m having power surges (which unfortunately seems to be quite a bit lately!)
