Wedding Guest Dress for my girl

After the baby suit, it is time to share with you all, the dress I made for my girl. She totally felt like a little princess, and danced non stop. She was so happy at her cousin's wedding!


Apparently I have a favourite pattern when it comes to girl's dresses, and it is the Bumblebee by Sewing Mama RaeAnna. All the previous ones I made confirm this (and there's even another one cut and ready to sew). 


I've mixed view A and view B of the pattern. The bodice is lined with a cotton red fabric. The main fabric of the dress, is the same I used for my pregnancy pants, and the ruffles are made with chifon. All fabric was in my stash. The chifon was given to me a few years ago by my in-law and she couldn't even remember when she saw the dresses (I used the same fabrics in my own). 


I was going to put on a cute button on the back, but I ran out of grey thread and it wouldn't be enough to sew a button hole, plus it wouldn't look as cute with a different one, so I just sewed on a metallic snap and it was ready to party. 


And here's a summary of all my Bumblebees, just in case you've missed any and you're curious:

    1. Obrigado Ana Sofia. Eu tb gosto muito de cinzento, escolhi o forro vermelho por culpa dos meus próprios acessórios (já que usei os mesmos tecidos para o meu vestido).
