Bubblegum Dress


I’m sharing this pink dress I made for Clementine over at skirt as top today as part of the Vintage May series Kristin is hosting along with Jess of CINO. Click over to skirt as top to see more pictures and a peek at the vintage pattern I used to make it!

Those of you who are fans of the pink rainboots will be happy to see they’ve made an appearance again. I am going to cry big fat turtle tears on the day I discover she is too big to squeeze her feet in these anymore.

  1. Love the dress! It is just too cute! I may have to make one for my Lillie! And the boots are awesome! My older daughter, who is now 17, had a pair of purple rain boots that she wore EVERY single day until she couldn’t anymore! She refused to wear socks with them too! So you know what that meant, they stunk! Awful! I was so happy when she outgrew them because that was one less fight that we had every day! But her aunt thought it was funny and bought her another pair in a bigger size, so for two years straight she wore them everywhere with everything! I hated it then but I love it now!

  2. Love the dress – it’s just adorable. And Clementine looks so happy in it!

    From one mommy to another, what does she wear under a dress like this? I hope this isn’t too weird a question, but I have a daughter about the same age, and now that the weather is warm enough to skip putting leggings under all her dresses, I’m not exactly sure what should go under there…

    • This is such a good question. My daughter is about to turn 5 and I still want her to wear dresses, but have been at a loss as to where to find little shorts to wear underneath… or even a pattern for making them. Any suggestions would be much appreciated!

      • She’s got a matching pair of bloomers underneath — if you click over to the skirt as top post you can see a couple of pictures!


        (“Weekend Sewing” by Heather Ross has a nice bloomers pattern in it (it goes up to 18-24 months, but since they don’t grow much wider after 2, it fits my 3 year old fine, and she’s average size)

      • You can look for a gymnastic shorts pattern to go under an older girls dress. My girls 5,6,7 all wear them. I found the pattern on etsy.

  3. Oh my what a cute dress. There’s a reason pink is said to be a girly color…looking at this dress just confirmed it.

  4. This dress is adorable. I am so inspired to make one like it for when my daughter is walking. Right now when i put her in dresses they just get filthy from crawling, but that should be done soon! Your dress is beautiful.

  5. Thanks so much for posting this little dress on my blog, Rae! It turned out so great and I bet if I show it to Em she’ll be requesting one, stat. πŸ˜‰

  6. She looks like she jumped right off the cover of some of my vintage patterns. So love that little dress. Where is her boater and white gloves? LOL.

  7. Rae can you pretty please make a pattern for this dress, i am sooo in love with it!!
