First Day of School Dress

When I was in the midst of getting everything ready for my little ones first birthday bash my older daughter asked if I could make her a dress for her first day of school.

I told her of course I would!

First I searched Etsy for a dress pattern we both liked.

I found the store Tie Dye Diva and fell in love with the Big Bow Dress.

After assuring Sam we could make the dress in pink {because if its not pink, she doesn't like it!} she was sold on it too!

So we headed off to JoAnns together and picked out some fabric. {mom having the final say of course. Three year olds pick out some interesting patterns. lol}

I had one question on the pattern and emailed my question to Jen, the owner of Tie Dye Diva, and she got back to me very quickly! It was a newbie question, and she didn't make me feel silly for asking it and she was more than helpful!

And the final product is awesome! Sam and I both LOVE the way it turned out! She wants to wear it every day and I have to keep reminding her we have to wait for the first day of school!

Sam picked the pink polka dot fabric :) I think it looks great!

The great thing about this pattern is the bow can be worn in the front or the back. It was too distracting to Sam to have it in the front, so we are keeping it in the back

And here it is on my little big girl! She will be starting pre-school next week!

Usually she is not in the mood to model things for me, but she was totally into it tonight! How cute is she?!

So now Sam is all set and ready to go for her first day of school next week! I hope she likes school as much as she likes her new dress :)

  1. Such a beautiful dress! Such nice photos - I'm glad your big little girl cooperated. My daughter does not like to stay still for pictures often. So I understand how special it is, when they do (and what is with that pose with the arms straight out? My girl does that one often, too! It's cute, but I just think it's so funny all little girls that age do it!). I hope the first day of school goes well!!
