My good friend Laura Gunn sent over a preview of her new line called Vignette and I just fell in love with some of the gorgeous springy prints. This one jumped out as a favorite (probably because the base colors are chartreuse and olive which I am somewhat obsessed with–see here, here, here and here…). I used this darling First Day Dress pattern by another good friend Dana, to make this tiny peplum top for Plum. I knew that I would be in trouble when I had a little girl, because I’d want to have all the fabric and sew all the things. I’ve been making girls dresses and costumes since before I even had my boys, and it’s still so much fun. Now that Plum is almost walking, I am excited to make her some things that will actually be seen as she toddles around, rather than dragging on the floor, or swaddled up in a blanket.
This floral first day dress was simple ( I love Dana’s patterns for their ease of use!) and turned out adorable. I have a couple more projects in store for some of the other prints in the Vignette line that I am excited to finish up. I think I should plan on always working with spring florals in the end of winter, because it brightens up some of the dreary days! And this little miss Plum brightens up everyday.
