I recently tested the I love the 90’s Girl Dress Sewing Pattern by Ellie and Mac.  I honestly did not know if my daughter would put the dress on, much less take photos in it.  She has not been much a dress girl this past summer.  “No dresses!” she says all time.  This is what I expected from this dress as well. However, not this time, not this dress!

Baby Girl did not want to take the dress off!!  She only would agree to take the dress off to put on her pajamas, if I agreed to put the dress back on, on top of her pajamas.  Silly Girl!  She kept saying, “No take off, I love it.”  Oh my goodness, it is a win! Are we turning a new leaf? Is it the style of the I Love the 90’s Girl dress or is it the fabric??

The fabric, you ask?  I ordered this wonderful fuchsia French Terry from Simply By Ti.  Baby Girl is obsessed with pink!  I do not mind, as I am also a huge fan of pink too.  When we received the fabric, I let her open the package and she was super excited to find some purple cotton/lycra and purple lace and she quickly forget about them when she found the pink French Terry.  We recorded a live video of the fabric opening, you can check it out in the Simply By Ti Fabrics Facebook Group.  It is super cute.

I fell in love with French Terry long before I started sewing.  I used to (okay I still do) wear Juicy Couture track suits all the time.  They are starting to get a little warn out.  Luckily now, I can make my own for a fraction of the price!!!  French Terry is so soft and comfortable.  I can see why baby girl did not want to take her 90’s Girl Dress off.

Now I cannot say she loves this dress, just for the fabric.  The new I love the 90’s Girl Dress by Ellie and Mac bodice is fully lined, so you have soft sides of the fabric on the inside. The skirt also has a front and piece instead of a circle. The skirt gathered well.

I am not always the best at getting perfect gathers for a skirt, however the pattern size width for the skirt was just the right fit.  I did not have to mess with the gathers too much when clipping them on to the bodice.

One thing I did a little differently than the instructions, is I basted the top and liner bodice pieces together before add the skirt pieces and the sleeves.  You do not have to this, I was just being careful to make sure I was able to sew all layers together.  The I love the 90’s Dress was super fast to put together.  I literally taped my pattern pieces, cut the pattern pieces out, cut the fabric and finished sewing the dress during nap time.  It was quick and easy and she loves it!  Woot Woot!

I wanted to go outside to take pictures of the dress, but Baby Girl was not interested in pictures.  “No Pictures!” and lots of angry faces when I tried.  One thing I have learned about taking pictures of my little ones is to let them have fun playing and capture them playing.  Last night we found a few pine cones in the yard, so I gave the kids some buckets and they had fun putting them in the buckets and dumping them out.

Well, I guess we found more than a few.  Baby Girl really enjoyed collecting all the pine cones. I was able to get adorable pictures like this one below of her putting a pine cone in her bucket.  I know it looks like Baby Girl is carrying a matching pink bucket, however its really an old red faded bucket.  Thanks Photoshop!!

Now PLEASE give me all your fun activities my kids can do with all of these pine cones.  The kids already had a lot of fun painting some pine cones.  Please leave some ideas or links to activities in my comments.

About Seams Sew Lo 57 Articles

Hi I’m Lo and I love to sew and I also love to play with my two children! I am a work at home Mom of two toddlers.  I never planned on staying home with the kids, however when I was 8 and 1/2 months pregnant with my first child, Little Dude, I was unexpectedly let go from my corporate job.  With a newborn and a tough job market, I decided to buy a Brother Sewing/Embroidery Machine and taught myself to sew. I would like to thank the many bloggers, youtube videos I have watched and PDF pattern designers for all their help.

With a degree in International Business from Blaise-Pascal University in France I decided to open my own business, an Etsy shop.  I started making baby leg warmers and then added embroidered bodysuits.  I was so busy I couldn’t keep up and had to seek out third party help.

After my second child, Baby Girl, life became super busy.  There is something about little girls clothes that makes them so much fun to create.  I started venturing out to more articles of clothing.  It has been a fun adventure.

I am learning as I go.  I sometimes skip steps or take short cuts, sometimes I take a long road to get where I need to go.  I don’t think sewing needs to be perfect, I think it should be fun!!
