Bonnie's Ice Cream Dress

Finished a new dress for Bonnie.  I finally got her to try it on this afternoon after much pleading.

I'm really happy with the look of this dress and the fabrics are so very fun together.  I so wish I would look cute in something like this.

Here is a close up of the two fabrics.

So cute! She looks adorable - even though it looks like there was a little protesting!

That dress is adorable! I really should try sewing some clothes for my kids.

I LOVE it! I was asking mom about those fabrics, cuz Flickr changed and I thought they were in her photo stream. It is adorable. When you say "ice cream dress", did you have a pattern or just work it out by yourself? I have to know!!! Are you coming next week????

I saw the two dresses finished at your house yesterday and I didn't say anything, but I LOVE THEM!! They are both so cute. I hope my (future) little girls have dresses that cute someday.

That cracks me up after she asked for a dress that you had to bribe/beg her to put it on! It turned out adorable. I also wish I could look cute in something that easy and breezy to wear.

I like the dress too. The material is cute and Bonnie is even cuter!

this dress is adorable, plus the big girl is also. It looks like you just asked her to show you her tonsils.

Darling. I remember protesting a time or two when your Grandma was sewing something for me to wear. Makes for good stories.

I love the fabrics you have chosen. Really pretty. I bet your daughter loves it too. Mermaids are hard to beat.
