Amelia Harper All Dressed Up

Such a sweet dress for a sweet little lady.  When I received my swatches from Modern Yardage for my Amelia Harper Collection, I really liked how the flowers and boxes print in Skye worked together and decided early on that would be used for Amelia's dress.  My very talented friend Carole chose the pattern and discussed what to use for lining and the buttons.

First Carole made a dress out of muslin to see how it fit Amelia. We met at The Linden Tree for a fitting and once Amelia got past the clothing change, she was very patient with having her inseams checked. Carole decided on a slightly larger size so Amelia could wear her dress longer.

Here are pictures of Amelia's dress up close. The dress is lined with voile. The lining is cut shorter than the outer fabric to pull the hem into a bubble shape. It is just beautiful! Carole did a fantastic job with her attention to detail. I can't thank her enough.

Here are a couple of yo yo headbands Liz made out of the flower print in a smaller scale. The stretchy elastic band was so comfortable for a baby to wear. Thanks to Liz for making these cute accessories that just add that final touch to the dress.
