A little friend of Clementine’s turned two a few weeks ago and I made her this little dress as a present. Couldn’t help myself. How could I help myself when these three Lizzy House prints go SO WELL TOGETHER? No answer. I must say she looked quite fetching in it the other day at the Ann Arbor Hands On Museum. So cute!!!
The ambulance at the museum was an unexpected hit (with all of our kids).
A bit more about the fabric:
For the last couple years, Lizzy House has been putting out new colors of this circle print (called “Pearl Bracelets”) each time she designs a new line of fabric. I made the now-”iconic” pair of Big Butt Baby Pants using the orange/grey pearl bracelets from Red Letter Day (by the way, the term “iconic” came from someone who stopped my cousin and her daughter A on the street in Brooklyn because A wears Clementine’s hand-me-downs and happened to be wearing THAT pair of pants — isn’t that insane? Love it!). Also: you must check out the version Lizzy made for herself (scroll down in this post) — inspired by this Instagram pic of mine shown below. Love her buttons on the back especially!!
The red and aqua prints are from the Hello Pilgrim collection which is still widely available, and the yellow is from Outfoxed and is a bit tougher to find. A few of my sponsors over there on the sidebar still carry lots of Lizzy though, so have a hunt and see if you can find them!!
A bit more about the pattern:
Perhaps you can see a bit of Charlie-Dress-influence in this design; Elli and I were actually working on the pattern pieces for this dress earlier this year, then deserted it for other projects. I’m not saying we won’t pick it up again, but it needs a bit of tweaking to be it’s own thing yet.
Well. I’m headed to Seattle soon for my mama’s 60th birthday celebration. Not sure how much time I’ll have to blog since I shall no doubt be up to my elbows in fabulous birthday preparations and/or cocktails. Have a great week!!
