One down 3 to go...

Okay here are pics of the dress I finished for the wedding.


Yes, my 4 yr old is wearing the dress intended for a 16 mo. old. Yes, she really is that tiny. Yes, we do try to feed her. No, she doesn't eat anything.

Now that that's all cleared up on to more good stuff.

This is the dress that I needed to coordinate with.
Jr, George, Kafra, AP & SO will be wearing this.

There wasn't a dress in Fred's size or MC, LP, or my soon to be brother in law's niece E. I found these on a favorite website and used them for inspiration. Fred's will look like the bigger dress. They won't have the really huge bow but I might do a wide black velvet ribbon sash, it still needs something...

This is the dresses next to each other.
Close enough? I'd better hope so it's too late to change it now!

Ok, I know I have been in survival mode, and not too aware lately...but who's getting married? One of your sisters-in-law?

Dresses look great.

While I'm glad you "only" have to make 4 dresses, yours are definitely going to outshine the storebought ones.

Yikes, what is with the store-bought one?? I didn't know it was possible to make a girl that young look dumpy. If it could at least be shorter, it might make the tulle not be so out of place, but the top of it as well... it's good that she's not old enough to be self-conscious about it. At least she won't have to wear it again!

I was hoping you would have a picute! I think the dress you made is absolutely darling with the bloomers and all! I can't wait to see them on everyone. P.S. I also think they'll look fabuluous with the other dresses. Once everyone has their hair done beautifully with the bows, they will look wonderful! Great job on matching the fabric!
