Dresses in pink

Here are the other two dresses I made for my nieces!
 I used the little geranium for Daisy and I love it! The dress turned out so cute on her, I wish I had some pictures to share but I didn't manage to get any :0( Oh and that little blurry spot was from a smudge on my lens I didn't realize was there until way to late.

  
 The little geranium doesn't come with a sleeve option since its a free pattern but I found out that the modern baby doll top sleeve worked perfect when I shrunk it down to 72%. I did add an inch in the sleeve length but otherwise it fit like it was made for it!

I didn't change anything on this dress except to lengthen it a bit and I used a 1/4" seam allowance instead of 3/8" and it fit her perfectly! She was in about 3-6 months in store bought for reference.


 For June I again used the Modern Babydoll top and I really love the fit!

 Pardon the smudge again!
I didn't do a zipper like it called for, I added 1" in the sleeve, added 2" to the bodice and lengthened the skirt, hmmm that was more changes than I realized, lol! Otherwise I did everything basically like the pattern called for. I think I should have used the 1/2" seam allowance because the fit wasn't as perfect as I would have liked but Boston said it fit great so maybe its just me being super picky.
It was so fun to sew these up!
