Happy Birthday To Miss Olivia
It's hard to believe that my baby is now two handfuls! Olivia was pretty pleased to be celebrating her 10th birthday. We are so grateful for this incredibly happy girl to grace our home! She sure is a tremendous blessing to our family.
Girls' Regency Dress Pattern. Olivia has outgrown the current sizing of the pattern, so I graded up the pattern. Along with grading the pattern up, I was able to add in some extra width and length so Olivia can wear the dress for a while longer, with a few changes.
This was the first time I made Olivia a birthday dress and purchased fabric for it. I usually 'shop' from my fabric stash, but not this time. Olivia has become very fond of the colour red, so I knew what colour to make the dress. The underdress is made from silk noil and the overdress is made from a synthetic lace. Olivia asked to have a doll cake again this year, so naturally, the doll had to have a matching dress. :)
Miss Olivia had a wonderfully fun day while her mother contemplated where the time has gone. She's growing up so fast! ;)
I hope I get to continue to make Miss Olivia more birthday dresses throughout the years to come. :)
