The prinCESS turned 5 and needed birthday dresses, so I got to sewing more Made By Rae Geranium dresses, this time without the sweetheart modifications like these. These photos are a bit old…March-ish, but that does not diminish the cute factor.
These are both French-seamed, with sewn down pockets (ever see a kid get frustrated trying to find a sleeve or pocket? yeah. that.) The modeling is ALL HER. She is all about fashion, sewing, posing, purple, pink, and rainbows. Both are Alexander Henry fabrics and if you love them, buy them. They’re selling out everywhere. I picked mine up locally at Modern Domestic, but they do sell online and just got in the kitty version with black and white colorway! I would look fabulous in that fabric.
Creepy eye thing going on – but the pocket shot had to be done:
She picked out these buttons herself. They have butterflies on them. <3
Surprisingly, she’s been favoring the cat versions. They remind me of some oversized sweatshirts I had in the 80s, so of course I love them. And I’m totally a cat person. She also picked out the purple flower buttons.
I really love the neckline options of the geranium dress, but when trying to showcase a unicorn or giant cat head, I couldn’t justify cutting out a notch.
You can’t handle this cute. Really. She does this all on her own.
I think I saw a rumor that Rae is drafting sleeves and extras for these dresses, so I’m excited about that. I’m sure I could do it myself, but, meh. Time is precious with this one. I’d rather take more photos of her.
