Bella's sporting her new fitted jersey dress from Alabama Studio Sewing + Design. I made the sleeveless, knee-length version, and then used circle-spiral appliques to embellish the hem. The circle spiral is a great entry point for the new embellisher--no paint or stencils are necessary, just the ability to cut out a sort-of circle. And sewing them on a garment is great fun.
The dress is topped with a cap-sleeved bolero from the same book. Such an easy pattern, and it takes just a dab of fabric. Also I've found that it fits both my differently-shaped girls like a glove. It's such a lovely design.
