Along with the baby quilt and bag that I sent off, I also wanted to include something for big sis. After verifying with her mom that she was now a few sizes bigger, I decided to go with a Geranium Dress, pattern from Made by Rae. This is definitely one of my go-to patterns for little girls. I’ve made three before (2 here and here) and I’m sure this won’t be the last (I’ve got several friend preggers with little girls right now).
I wanted something she could wear every day, but I also wanted a little something extra so that she felt special. I opted for using this Paperie design by Amy Sinibaldi. The little shapes looked like fireworks to me so after completing the dress, I applied rhinestones to the centers of them in an artistically (in my opinion) random pattern. Overall, really happy with how it turned out — perfect for summer!
Here’s the back. I used simple white buttons. And below, some close ups of the sparkles.
