Geranium Dresses!

Every time I look at the Geranium Dress flickr pool, I can’t help but emit little squeaks, ooohs, and awws at all the beauties in there. The Geranium pattern has proven to be so versatile — as a dress or a tunic with different styles (sleeves/no sleeves/ruffle sleeves/pockets/no pockets), and it’s popping up as anything from totally casual play dresses all the way on up to fancy flower girl dresses!

I must also commend you on the fine photography in the photo pool.  You’re capturing the little girls in your lives at such candid moments.  Here are a few of my favorites from this summer:

Rachel blogged about her daughter’s dress here.

I love the Briar Rose prints she selected for this dress, and she certainly got some great photos!

Playing with fabric combinations for this dress has been really fun.  Sometimes you just get a tiny peek of the lining, but those details are delightful! Jessica blogged about this one here (love love love that Lizard print):

I’ve always figured Geranium could be a year-round staple in any little girl’s wardrobe.  Here are a few gearing up for cooler weather by layering with t-shirts and jeans or leggings. Geranium Fall Mosaic

  1. I’ve been having so much fun with the Geranium pattern! My daughter has 4 of them hanging in her closet and she uses them all the time. Thanks for featuring my polka dot and plaid Geranium tunic in your roundup!

  2. Squee! I see my Maggie Geranium in there! Thank you for including me! So. Many. Pretty. Dresses. I want to make like ten more. Right now.

  3. I would like to make these for my granddaughters, can the back be made like the regular washi dress?
