Octavia’s Dress

I have been making dresses lately for the little ladies in my life. I still have a couple to finish up, but Octavia’s somehow manged to get sewn last week before her birthday party. I am using a new pattern I’ve been working on, a combination of a pillowcase dress and sleeves. I think I still need to work out some kinks with the collar – I wanted to leave it sergered…but we’ll see what Miss O thinks!

Happy birthday sweet girl!
