Allie's Puppet Show Dress Front

I made this sweet little dress for (soon to be) 3 year old Allie, the daughter of a friend of mine www.flickr.com/photos/emedoodle/ . Her favorite color is violet and she loves handmade dresses so I knew what to make her and easily decided to make the adorable Puppet Show Dress from a pattern by Oliver and S. This was my first time making this pattern and I have to say I am very pleased with the finished product. I used quite a few pins to make sure that the sleeves attached correctly but in the end they were beautiful and worth the extra fuss. I had NO PROBLEM making all 9 button holes on this little sweetie as I have switched from using my machine's automatic buttonholer to the manual setting (much more control is better in this area). I can see many more of these in my future! If you would like to see pictures of Allie in the dress hop on over here www.flickr.com/photos/emedoodle/5965563328/in/photostream/ thanks Emily for taking great pics of your cute girlie :)
