Vogue 1224 Tracy Reese for Megan & KS 3811 for Sophie
Like everyone else I liked the look of this pattern Vogue 1224 by Tracy Reese. I saw it on Erica B's blog and GiGi Sew's blog and just had to make it for one of the girls. I showed to Megan and she loved it. I happened to have a piece of fabric I had ordered for undies that she liked and wanted me to use. It was very bright yellow and purple print that I was a little leary of. I not only had enough for the dress but also enough scraps to cut a little matching onesie out for Megan's daughter Sophie with Kwik Sew 3811. She's not sure she's in love with it but she's going to wear it. Sophie's onesie was cut out with a 6-12 months width and 12-18 month length. It's a little snug in the sleeves so I'm going to remove them and either make it sleeveless or replace with larger sleeve. The Tracy Reese dress goes together so quickly. I like the way it isn't tight in the front but is more fitted in the back. My daughter Judy and my daughter in law Liz both want one in thier size. I'm glad it was simple.
