A few weeks ago, I ordered three yards of coordinating prints from Heather Bailey’s Nicey Jane fabric line. My plan was to make Sayla and Keadryn little semi-matching dresses for Keadryn’s third birthday party later this month.
Three things to notice:
1- The fabric… gorgeous right? I matched the girls’ dresses to Jordi’s red-and-green birthday party palette, but isn’t the aqua beautiful as well? The laminated ‘pocketbook green’ (see above) is on my mother’s day wish list.
2- The shirring. I can’t stop y’all.
3- I ended up making 4 dresses. One for Keadryn, one for Sayla, a little one for teeny baby Hannah… And (here’s where the confession comes in) I used the extra fabric to make a coordinating newborn dress just in case Peanut #2 is a girl. I know it’s weird to make a dress for a baby that might be a boy. But I couldn’t help myself. There, I said it.
Tutorial to come, by the way… so y’all can join in the nicey, shirred, pocket-y, summer-y goodness.
These are so cute. The shirring is fabulous and comfortable. I remember wearing "sun dresses" — that's what we called these — when I was little. They were favorites of mine!
oh those are sooo cute! you did a great job, and the nicey jane is fabulous!
oh cute! i love those!!! can't wait to see them on the girls!
Ohhhh I'm so jealous!! Nicey Jane is the cutest! They dont sell it around here though! Well the dresses are adorable!!
love em! and I may or may not have bought the cutest romper at Target today for my unborn child that I don't know the gender. We just want to be prepared, right?

just beautiful! I saw some similar fabric here yesterday, but the colors/pattern were awful – these are fabulous! great find & fab ending!
Those are darn cute! I made one similar for an American Girl. Posted a pic today. I can't stop with the Shirring either! So fun now that I've figured it out.
