Cool and cute outfits

With summer blasting in on us I had to think fast and start getting some more outfits ready for mizz Sprout to keep cool.

This first dress/top: I used the pattern and tutorial from Sewing in no mans land called the "The Yorkshire in {mini}".  It's a darling little dress. (sorry I have no pictures with Sprout wearing it yet. She's been sick)
The tutorial is very easy to follow. I only layered the bodice pieces so it's a bit more flowy and breathable for Sprout. The other thing that's nice about this dress, is that it fits just right to be worn as a dress or as a top with leggings. Definitely going to make a few more of these for her wardrobe.

The next dress: I actually made the pattern myself. (still a bit of a work in progress) I'm hoping to get it just right to have it available for a free download.
It's just a pretty simple dress.

 I wanted to add a little color to break up all the green on the top, so I found some cute pink buttons that matched the color in the skirt. Also, instead of making button holes I applied snaps (cause if you have a daughter like mine who would, rather go naked the fuss with clothes, you need to have a quick process). I then just sewed the buttons over the backside of the snaps.

This bow idea actually came from a pinterest idea for a old fashion bow for a headband. I then sewed it to the front with the tie to hold it in place.
