Gray Polka Dot Dress

At some point in the last few months I saw a picture online of a little girl in a gray dress with bright yellow accents.  I made the gray polka dot dress (actually 2 of them, one was a gift) awhile ago, but not surprising my little model has been uninterested in modelling.  The weather was not cooperative either, and the model refused to wear the shoes I selected.

The dress is made from the same pattern I used to make her birthday dress, the Geranium Dress.  I really can't stress how much I like this pattern.  It's pretty simple to put together, and it leaves lots of room for creativity through the fabric.  I already have a few more versions planned.

I think we may have to have a do-over on this photo shoot.  Maybe I can get her into the bright yellow patent leather sandals I found on super clearance last summer.  But I'm not holding my breath.

The designer of the pattern offers a commercial license for this pattern.  I've toyed with the idea of purchasing it and making a few of these dresses in fun fabrics available for purchase, somewhere.  But I'm not sure I have the stay-with-it-ness that would require.
