I made this beautiful thing

The dress and the kid.

Do you ever have one of those moments when you look at your sweet baby and remember that you actually made her? When I was taking pics of Tatey in this dress this morning, I was thinking about what a pretty little girl she is and then stopped to think about the fact that she's half me. So, next time I look in the mirror, instead of focusing on my double chin and the perfectly round ball on the end of my nose, I'll remember that I created a beautiful child (so did Crafty Papa, but right now, I'm focusing on the fact that she's half me...even though she mostly looks like him).

You can't have the sweet girl but you can have the beautiful dress. It's listed in my shop as size 18 months-3T, depending on what kind of fit you like. So, be sure to read the measurements and see if it might work for the beautiful girl you made.

Oh, and let me know what you think of the style. I really love shirring and think it's a little more grown up looking than the peasant dress. I've been getting requests for bigger size dresses and hopefully this listing answers some of those requests.

I LOVE this dress! I may have to snatch it up if I can justify it. :)

What a great post...she is a gorgeous child! I especially love that her name is Matea...she's the only one I've ever heard of with that name and it suits her well. I really love that style dress. I have been wanting to try shirring...you do a great job Kelci.
