ltts sew along: tea party doll dress

So here it is, the last month of the Little Things to Sew sew along *sniff, sniff*. I've really enjoyed this sew along month after month. I've never made so many projects from one book, and the monthly deadlines gave me the extra push I sometimes need to get things done. And of course I liked being a part of a little sewing community, as I don't know too many sewists in "real life". Doesn't everyone seem to say that on their blogs? Where are we all hiding with our sewing machines?? Anyway, a big thank you to Jessica at A Little Gray for organizing this wonderful sew along!

Since we already have an explorer-type vest that was purchased during A's Dino Dan phase, and has not been touched in ages, I decided to make the Tea Party Doll Dress this month. I had fabric left over, so I made it to match K's birthday dress.

Isn't it cute? Now I wanna splurge on the actual tea party dress pattern for K. That flared hem is just adorable. Luckily K has an American Doll-esque doll (thank you, Target!) that this dress fits perfectly.

And here's the birthday girl and her doll in their matching dresses. She had a wonderful party with her family!
