I made Baby Girl’s dress from an adorable cat double brushed polyester from So Sew English fabrics.  Isn’t it cute?  They actually have some in stock right now here! Hurry!  She also has a pair of leggings in this fabric, however I thought that might be a little much.  Maybe? I have been hoarding this cat fabric for awhile!!  In fact, I still have quite a bit of fabric left.  Would you like to win a yard?  Sign up at the end of the post!

One of her latest favorite things is this pink cat stuffed animal.  It is part of a Doc Mcstuffins Vet Carrier set.  She loves to carry her little cat around.  She has been hit or his miss with wearing dresses, but she is actually starting to like them more as she gets older.  So, that day she happened to playing a lot with her little pink cat.  I had a great idea!  I told her, her cat would probably love for her to wear a cat dress to match her.  She fell for it and loved the idea. The only problem with my brilliant idea was…

She did not want to put her cute little kitty cat down for any of the pictures. I usually try to get pictures without any distractions. However when photographing toddlers, I have found sometimes they work with you and sometimes you have to work really hard to get a photo.  In my previous posts, I have given a little advice on taking photos of toddlers.  My best advice is just to let them play and capture them playing.  Bribery is now starting to work with her too.  LOL.  She will now say, “Put camera down, Mommy.” So now, I can as her to “stand over here and smile and I will put it down”.  Those pictures are not as usually as good as the pictures where she is playing though.

Real smiles are always the best!!  There were a few times she put her pink kitty cat down, but it was so she could pull her around in the wagon, hello wagon…

Just look at that dress though! I just love it!  The Sweetie dress sewing pattern will definitely be a staple in our wardrobe!  I am currently working on a Christmas tunic version.  I am so excited.  It is a super fast sew too! Now when she finally did put her kitty cat down, she kept running from me, so I took lots of pictures of the back of the dress for you.  LOL!

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!!

  1. I love her kitty dress! She looks adorable in it and I love that she has her stuffed kitty with her!

    I might just have to use your toddler photography tips with my teenagers! Lol! It seems like I have to take a million pictures with them because they are either stiff or being goofy… but then I always end up with some good ones out of the bunch!

  2. So cute! I love the cat fabric. I’m trying to rack my brain for what I would make with it but I can’t come up with anything yet! I’ll stare at it for a while and let inspiration hit. 🙂

  3. My 15 year old son would probably end with a shirt out of this oddly enough. He loves cats and his favorite shirt is actually galaxy cats 😂.

  4. This is so gorgeous on her. I would totally make a hoodie or something for my son – he’s almost 4 and is convinced he’s a cat most days. (I’m laying in my bed and literally just heard him meow downstairs in the play area lol)

  5. This is super cute! I’ve been looking at this pattern for my 2 girls, too. My oldest just started getting into kitties. She pretends she’s a cat for like an hour! She would love this! I’m thinking leggings (they are a staple for us) and raglans with kitties as accent patches on the shoulders.
