Linky Party #3 and Corduroy Dress


After making the bubble skirt for my little girl I thought about making a bubble dress, but I bought too little of fabric. :( Bummer. So I ended up making a dress for her that had sleeves and a back that closes with elastic over a button. I saw that idea from Carol over at http://naturallycarol.blogspot.com/2010/10/strawberries-jam-drops.html Check out her blog. She makes adorable aprons, dresses, buntings, pillowcases...SEW inspiring!
Here it is on Catherine. I didn't use a pattern, but simply traced around another dress, added a gathered skirt and a black band to coordinate. I still have trouble with sleeves. Why do my sleeves always come out so big? They look big and ruffley but were supposed to be small and dainty. hahaa! Oh well I still like it.



And I always laugh because Catherine is very petite, but in all the pictures she's eating a snack, drinking her juice or has her last snack all over her face! She has her mommy's appetite :)
And how do I get the red eye out of my pictures? Is it a camera setting? Hmmm...must look into this.
