I finally finished Philippa's dress that I cut out in Elsie Marley's Spring Kids Clothes Week Challenge. Even better it was a lovely warm sunny day perfect for a photo shoot with the littlest member of our family.

This is another Seashore Sundress by Oliver + S. I love this pattern, it is a super cute dress so easy to sew and lends itself so nicely to using multiple fabrics. This time I have used Ta Dot in Berry, Ann Kelle's Hearts in Bright and Dot to Dot in Navy from the Children at Play range. I sewed size 18-24M for Philippa which is actually a little long right now, but it keeps it modest especially with a bulky nappy underneath. It was very satisfying to cut out a pattern and sew up a lovely dress (no measuring, fiddling, altering). Philippa is 2 in a couple of weeks, so this is her Birthday Dress and she is very happy with it!
I added a couple of heart appliques as she loves hearts and choose the fabric for the front panel. So as you can see there is one on the back. I used dot to dot in Aqua from Children at Play range of fabric.
I also appliqued a heart on the facing as a faux label, using dot to dot in Berry. To keep it colourful I used Sandi Henderson's Henna Garden in Yellow for the facing.
She enjoyed having photos taken after watching her sisters getting fussed over in the past. It was very cute!
