DIY Girl's Dress: The Norah

It's the final week of Project Run & Play and this week's theme is 'Signature Style'. I'm thrilled to have my act together enough this week to be able to link up my creation.

I'm not really sure that I truly have a 'Signature Style', but when I think of my favorite styles, the words that come to mind are: simple, classic, clean and bright.

The pattern I used for the dress is the Norah Dress by Mouse House Creations.  I love the clean, simple lines of this pattern and the vintage look of this dress.

The Norah features a peter pan collar to give it a classic, timeless look


I chose to fully line this dress and use a wide hem.

The back of the dress features a simple 1 button closure.  Getting photo of the back of the dress on the baby proved to be quite difficult.

I also made a matching diaper cover using this free tutorial.

The fabric for this look came from a vintage bed sheet.  You may have seen the other dress I made using this same fabric.  If not, check it out here!

The girls will be wearing these dresses for Easter this year.  I attempted to get a good photo of them together in their dresses, but Ella wasn't really interested in that.  She was more focused on her shiny shoes.

This is about as good as I could get.

It is eerily similar to their Easter photo from last year.
