Bubble Dress...PUMPKIN inspired

Baby clothes are soooo cute! & so fun to make!

About a month ago, my hubby and I found this adorable little Pumpkin beanie at Gymboree. (Love how they have the line of clothing in coordinating sets!)


yessiree! an A.dor.able little hat!  So cute for the fall months ahead...October...November...

 Joining in with Jenny's Alphabe-Thursday's P!
Well, we bought the Pumpkin beanie and in my head, I thought how cute a bubble-type skirt or dress would be to go with it.  Monday, I bought some fabric to match...an orange (with white Polka dots) to match the hat....solid green to match the trim on the hat...and also a dark orange with small herringbone style print.

So yesterday I was off from work and couldn't wait to sew...

...starting with the bodice and sleeves to a basic pattern..

ta-dah! a little Pumpkin-inspired bubble dress.


I wanted to do a different color (fabric) and added the grosgrain belt with the felt flowers (I saw this on a creative blogger's post...but will have to find her link for you)... and also wanted to do the bubble skirt... and wanted to add the grosgrain trim on the bottom.

And...I really LOVE the idea of two in one...so I made this a reversible bubble dress. That way, while she is out socializing and happens to spill some yummy hors'devours n such...no problem, wipe it off and turn it inside out :o)

( I made a reversible dress for Bunny's flower girl dress that she wore for her Auntie's (aka our Girly~Whirly's) wedding in May.


You can see the Polka dot fabric peeking out :o) 

I still have to do the buttons ...well...it may not need them.... But I am excited that it is working out the way I imagined it in my mind.

Shhh! After I make a bib or two to match, I will be sending this out to our grandbaby Bunny! I hope it fits! I'll let you know if it does and when I get some photos of her in it, I will be sure to post them :o)
