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 . 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 thanks Emily for taking great pics of your cute girlie :)
