A Story about Sophie and the Darla Jumper outfit

Soooo remember this pattern I wanted from The Bailey Girl's shop?

Jen sent it to me! Yea!
Thank you, again. I've since made two of these dresses!

This is the story of the first one I made for Sophie.

Scene: At her party, admiring her new clothes.




A couple weeks later, a package comes in the mail!!!



Ta-da!The Darla Jumper!







But WAIT!



Yes. They are cute!!!



But... what's this?



OH NO!!! Poor baby!





Yes. That's better.





Yes... so the shoes didn't fit... and it's a durn shame, too, because I just love how they came out.



I used this pattern again, but added the big bows to the front instead of the flowers.
Megan wanted plain black... but I just couldn't do it.

For the bow, I got some of this NEW headband stuff from Hobby Lobby and just kept layering the ribbons.



I really like it in action- but not so much on Lucy.



I do like the dress on Lucy, though.



Isn't she cute!?
(The is the bodice pre-ruffles)



and post ruffles.



I especially like the back of this dress with little sassy boots.



Perhaps Sophie can get some boots to wear with it since the shoes didn't fit.

*All fabrics and ribbons are from Hobby Lobby.*
