crafts:: little girl's reversible dress

i made my first little dress from smashed peas and carrot for ickleoriental's little bub. 
 can i just add that little girls are soooooo much fun! the crafting ideas out there are endless.. and the fabric choices are infinitely cuter!!

 i pray that everyone starts popping girlies around me!
then i get to play dress up with all of them...
(sorry mum. maternal instincts still zero.)

i picked a less conventional blue because little nae's mummy is not quite the glittery pink and fluffy tutu-skirt kinda gal. so i thought i'd down a pink a notch! :)

i picked up the crabby prints waiting for a special project to work on. 
and on the other side, i chose blue polka dots. 
and a helped pick out all the cutie buttons when she was in town! 

using coordinating scraps and made two headbands to go with the dress. (i absolutely love little girls in head bands!!) i figured it would go pretty with the dress and if she hated it, it could be used for her adorable rosco and sally... so all three sibling can be matchy matchy! :)

as i was making them, i had the sweetest images in mind.
but this beats all of them hands down...

little grey polka dotted romper & sheets are perfection... 

overdose of cuteness...
