The Itch to Stitch: Dress 2

My blogger pal, Sue, is doing a skirt a month this year and is posting the last Monday of the month, which is today.  See her skirt here.
I decided to join her.   I'm aiming to make a dress a month for the next 12 months for my little girl.  I do love a gorgeous little dress, especially a mama made one, on my little girl.  So, that's the plan.
Dress one: Here.

And here's this month's.

It's a wool dress. Good for winter living in big old house.  It's a Simplicity pattern. I made it big, on purpose.  I suspect there will not be too much winter left (although one never knows in Maine) and I'm hoping it will still fit next winter. 

I walked through THIS MUCH snow to take this picture.
 Before I get to my little model wearing such dress, I had to take a couple of pictures of the beautiful winter.

 Winter is really quite lovely, I'd say.
And here she is, sweet girl. Nearly impossible to photograph. She thinks it's twirl dress. And she has much to do between twirls.

I just so happened to make a dress to match her fave baby, too.

 This baby has been going to and fro with her lately.

 I love a little one snuggling their lovey.

 Dress two is done.  Wonder what March's dress shall be?  Definitely haven't gotten that far yet. 

 Won't you join us and sew something monthly?  Do share what you created and check what next month's dress will be here.  And make sure to head on over to to see what she's been up to.


  1. Oh, my that is such a sweet jumper. The pink ribbon looks so pretty against the grey. Love the matching doll dress and those little curled toes on your model. :-)

  2. I LOVE it! You did such a great job!! I think it is so sweet that you make her baby doll a matching dress.

  3. Oh my goodness! First off, great work! The dress for her and the doll are precious! So cute! Secondly, what lovely pictures of winter you've shared here.

    Wishing you a lovely day.

  4. Very nice! I really like the cute pink bow. Adds a nice feminine touch :) Her pink knit hat is just so adorable as well!

  5. So sweet!! Love the winter photos and you're so right, it really is lovely. :)

  6. Love your dress and the precious little one wearing it (very cute). Thanks to you and Sue's encouragement, I finished mine this afternoon and sent the link to Sue. Now I'll be on track (started late for March). We had a winter storm yesterday and kinda coming out of it today, however, Ithink another one is predicted Friday. :-). I'm gonna follow your blog now!
