A Birthday Dress

I was going to make Lotte a ruffle-y dress for her party, but I wanted something that sort of matched her invitations.  So I had to go with scallops!

In order to get as much color as possible I went with vertical stripes that ended in scallops.  I measured her waist and doubled it.  Each strip sewn together, turned and top-stitched is 3 inches wide.  There are 12 scallops {2 each} ROYGBP :)

I gathered the sewn together scallops and attached them to a 2 inch wide strip of rainbow fabric and a white bodice piece.

For the braided neck line I got my inspiration from Me Sew Crazy.  I would have loved to use the woven braid, but Lotte's size is just too small.  It really needs to be on a bigger kid in order to do it justice.

She loves her party dress.  And it was exactly what mommy was hoping for.
