Simple Dress Dilemma

I was inspired to make my daughters little matching dresses since I had such roaring success with Ophelia’s. It took me several hours and several seams ripped before I turned out this little gem.

It was only when I tried the finished product on Miss Mira that I realized in my attempt to keep any loose ribbons from being a hazard that I had made the straps undeniably the wrong size. The fact that she is a mobile little creature who won’t tolerate “beauty takes pain”-ness-straight-jacket-like-sheath-dress also came to light. Looks like Ophelia’s babydoll just inherited a new dress. As you can see, I also made little shorts, but in my haste to turn them out before the end of naptimes, I forgot to make them diaper sized friendly. Pride goeth before the whatsit? Better luck next time.
