Two sugarplums in two Sugarplums9:30 pm
After falling in absolute love with the Sugarplum Top pattern by See Kate Sew when I made it for Edison here, I decided that for our Family Day I would make matching dresses for Eddie and her cousin as presents.

So I made two more Sugarplum Tops, but as dresses. I used the full length of them and lined the bodice in white. They are both the 6 months size, but for Edison's head didn't fit through her neckhole very well! Even though the previous version of this dress fit her perfectly. Either I made an error in my sewing or my baby's brain grew... haha.
Ziva is two months old, and as you can see the 6 month sizing fits her pretty well with lots of room for growing. She's a tall girl!

Next time I make this for Eddie, I might add a small slit and button in the back, or in the front. I think now I know this pattern well I can start deviating from it and adding my own design features.
Baby Ziva is almost three months younger than Edison, but she is catching up in height and weight! They could not be more different!
I think my favourite part of the dress is the cute little frilled sleeves.
