Miss Independent needs an Independence dress




Yes. She is. Miss Sophie is already rolling over, sitting in a bumbo chair and sleeping thru the night.

ughhhh.... she's growing so fast and I'm not there to see it! Sometimes it bums me out so bad, that I just have to cut out and make something for her right away.
That's what happened yesterday.

So... after browsing many patterns and pattern books, I went to my trusty lil blue boo recycled halter dress pattern. I think I should be getting kick backs for all the advertising I do for this. hahahahahhahahahha It's just too great. It's so easy, so quick and so cute. Win. Win. Win.

What do you think? I LOVE it!


The applique is one of those awesome ruched designs from Embroitique. I think this one is my favorite I've done so far! It's just so cute and I especially love it in the knit fabrics!



and of course, she had to have a matching bow!



I think I've decided my favorite straps are the stationary ones.



I usually leave the straps free for my Mom to fit and tack down for me, but I just couldn't wait to see it finished. I hope it fits my little Sophie.

I can't wait to see her modeling it!!!
