This is my current project.

My best friend, Maria, asked me to make her daughter a dress for her first birthday.  This is an A-line dress made from lavender lined pique with dark brown piping and band along the bottom.  I made the applique out of the same dark brown and a purple and white dotted cotton woven.

I’m really happy with how the piping turned out, it really finishes the look.  🙂  I need to finish stitching the purple “icing” on the cupcake, stitch the candle and flame on, hem it and do the buttons and button holes.  I’m doing covered buttons out of the dark brown that’s along the bottom.  Finally, I’ll take it down and have her daughter’s name monogrammed onto the purple icing.  I hope she likes it!
