We love Olivia the Pig!
And I just finished this little dream dress for
She requested a red dress with a smocked
Olivia the Pig on it.
Well, there is no smock plate for Olivia.
So I smocked it free hand.
She also requested that Olivia be wearing
her red formal gown,
have a pearl necklace and red bows on her ears.
She wanted her name on the front too.
The dress had to be red with red and white
polka dotted piping, a full twirly skirt
and a big bow in the back.
The smocking kept washing out with the flash
and the fabric is really a darker red.
Oh, and what pattern did I use to sew the dress?
I didn't use one.I knew I wanted the smocking to be curved to the waist
and I just drafted a pattern based on Madison's
Oh...can you just see the buttons on the cuffs?
Why yes, those would be Swarovski crystal buttons.
The red crystals on the smocking are as well.
And tulle is sewn to the underskirt to pouf it out!
It looks all crooked but it is actually straight.
Here is the dress I created for Madison last year.
She requested Tinkerbell!
And this was the dress I made her in 2008
when she requested pink with princesses.
Happy Birthday Madison!
I hope your day is as lovely and wonderful as you are.
