Midweek With Marion

Hello, Dear Ones and welcome to Midweek With Marion.




 Today I want to show you this sweet little yellow checked dress that can be worn to church or a tea party. I didn't have a complete pattern for this, just the bodice part. But that's okay because you know how talented I am! Please know I'm just kidding!
 I was poodling around on Pinterest and saw this darling little dress and you've guessed it ~ this was my inspiration. HERE is the web site if you're interested and it's called the Itty Bitty Dress. Don't you just love that?
 Looks like ribbon embroidery on the inspiration dress or maybe a little lacy applique. Well, I didn't have the time to do any embroidery so I hot glued down this little daisy applique I already had. I'm using notions and fabrics I already have. I just cut a rectangle for the skirt and made sure it would be a longer skirt to look more 'lady like'. I also wanted a deep hem like the inspiration. My mother used to sew for me when I was little and she would always put deep hems in my dresses. Now that I look back, I wonder if maybe one of the reasons was if I grew tall quickly, she could let the hem down. Well, probably not since I'm not even 5' tall now. :)
Marion was looking all lady like and then she goes and acts like a five year old! Well, that kinda goes along with the territory of little girl dolls! ;)

Hope you've liked seeing our little church/party dress today and I'll be looking forward to you coming back next Wednesday. Before you go, please go to my friend, Diane's blog Welcome To Lavender Dreams as she has a beautiful doll with a gorgeous night gown to show you!

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Little Bitty Pretty One

Little bitty pretty one
Come on and talk-a to me
A-lovey dovey lovey one
Come sit down on my knee
Tell you a story
Happened long time ago
Little bitty pretty one
I've been watchin' you grow
Little bitty pretty one
Come on and talk-a to me
A-lovey dovey lovey one
Come sit down on my knee
