B's "Bumblebee" Dress & Giveaway!

This week I'm part of Sewing Mama RaeAnna's very first Pattern Tour for her Bumblebee Dress Pattern! It's always really exciting to see sewing bloggers, become pattern designers! For awhile I thought I wanted this for myself, but after re-evaluating things, I have changed my mind! haha! Anyways, you can see this adorable pattern for yourself!
Everything was flawless with her pattern! I love that you can easily monogram it! Even though, I have this option, I just didn't see it in this first dress for B! This is B's very first hand-made by me dress and after putting the yellow and navy fabrics together, playing around with adding a monogram or not, I ended up loving adding some simple silver buttons.
I sewed up the 12 month size, and it was rather big on B... but I also made it short sleeve, so that just means she can wear it into this next spring... Lord willing, I still get her in my house then!
I used a Kate Spain fabric that I've loved for a long time and paired it with a navy classic polka dot!
Cai helped B stand up, since she isn't walking yet! He's such a sweet big brother! I love love love watching him be a big brother to her!

There are a lot of other very talented sewists on this tour, so be sure to check out the Sewing Mama RaeAnna blog to follow along!
