Alyssa's 3rd Birthday Grace Ruffle Dress

Look who turned three last weekend!

Isn't she the most beautiful and sweet little girl you've ever seen?
It's so painful to miss their birthdays... but my family is so good about sending photos.
I even got to see her open her birthday dress! And thank goodness it made it to TX for her party!

It fit perfectly and she looked so pretty in it!

By the way... Have I told you how much I love this pattern?
Yep... it's the forth one I've made and I just love every single version of it.
The ruffles are so sweet.
I'm working really hard on getting the designer Lisa Williams of Funktional threads to do a give-a-way on the blog. I would LOVE for one of you to get one of these patterns!

I was so short on fabric on this one that I had to make the bottom ruffle with a rolled hem, but I love the contrasting teal thread on the purple ruffle...can you see that?

These two are so cute together...

Just soooo, soooo cute. I miss these little girls so much!

Look at that face!!!

I used Lynnie Pinnie's mermaid applique for the front. I LOVE that applique! And every little girl loves mermaids!

I had difficulty finding ribbons to match these fabrics, but I like how the bow turned out, just the same.

And while I don't think the dress got this kind of reaction...

I'm pretty sure the other thing I made her is one of her favorite birthday gifts...

I'll show it to you tomorrow.

Happy Birthday sweet girl. Aunt Cole loves you so much.
