Lydia's Lydia dresses

My inspiration to learn to sew came from the genius, Chelsea, behind Pink Fig Patterns. She makes the greatest patterns that are so user friendly, even for a beginner like me. When I saw she had a 'Lydia' dress, I HAD to make one for MY Lydia! I made one...

...then, I made another...

...and now, I want to make more. LOL I mean, how many dresses is TOO many for a little girl?? She doesn't have too many places to wear them, so I guess I should be practical and not go overboard...for now. I do know a few other little girls who might like one, though!

I think I need to take a small 'clothes' break and focus on my first quilt! I bought some absolutely GORGEOUS fabric by Lila Tueller and I cannot wait to get started. Lydia will be moving to her big-girl bed soon, so I need to get on it! Like, NOW! Here's what it looks like all laid out:

So, I've got some sewing to do. I'll be sure to update as I get underway!
