It’s Gonna Be May blog tour with Petite Stitchery & Co Sewing Patterns is here! In hopes of warm weather, I made girls Daisy Dress sewing pattern. As Spring has not officially sprung here, it snowed in April 3 times!! Craziness! Spring keeps peeking her head out and giving us a nice day or two and then reverts back to coldness. However, looking at the forecast it looks like Spring may officially be arriving soon!
Disclosure: As a part of the Petite Stitchery Promotional team I did receive the Daisy Dress sewing pattern for free. Also as a Simply By Ti Fabrics Ambassador I received the fabric free as well. All thoughts are completely my own, as I am not required to positively speak about either company. I hope will enjoy them as much as I do!

As soon as, I saw the release of the girls Daisy Dress sewing pattern, I knew Baby Girl needed one! You can find it here. I kept changing my mind on fabric choices as well. By the time I had taped the pattern together, I had a few thoughts on which fabrics I could use to make the Daisy Dress sewing pattern. However, I thought I would give my fabrics one look and I came across this peach rayon spandex and melon lace from Simply by Ti Fabrics!
I technically ordered the fabric for myself, in which, I do have the fabric already cut out for my own shirt. However, I have not had a moment to sew it up yet. Do you have lots of unfinished projects too? Or am I the only one? This fabric is certainly absolutely stunning! As I mentioned in the Be Dreamy Dress post, I just absolutely adore peach. It can be hard to find at times, so grab it whenever I can. You can find the peach rayon spandex fabric here and the melon lace fabric here.
Baby Girl ended up loving the dress! To her, it was “close enough” to my pink obsessed little girl. The dress was very simple as well and quite quick. As I had mentioned above, Spring had not sprung yet, so that cold dreary day we took some photos inside. She was twirly and jumping all over the place. Her little cheeks are red from all the fun she was having. Baby Girl calls this her “ballerina dress.”
The lace did not bother Baby Girl at all; in fact she loved it! Although she may be used to lace by now with her lace leggings I have made her in the past. You can see her purple lace leggings here and her pink lace leggings here.
I had no idea how much Baby Girl loved her new Daisy Dress sewing pattern till that evening. After dinner, she wanted to show Daddy her dress. Daddy thought she just meant actually showing him the dress, however Baby Girl meant putting the dress on. When he said not tonight and put her in pajamas, Baby Girl cried. I mean full on tears bawled! She wanted to wear her ballerina dress!
What? Someone was crying? We had one happy little girl, so happy. So, I took the opportunity, pulled out my umbrella lamp for evening photos and snapped a few more pictures.
The color of the melon lace is absolutely stunning. I think the lace overlay is the extra special detail that makes the dress. Feel free to read my ever so easy How to Sew a Lace Overlay Tutorial.
So the two skirts on the Daisy Dress sewing pattern are both circle skirts. So, they make a little circle each when you cut out the skirts. I took the two circles and made a hair bow for Baby Girl. I scrunched them together down the center and sewed them down. I wrapped some extra peach rayon spandex around the center, hot glued it on and then glued on a bow I had in my stash.
Baby Girl has gone from the girl who does not want to wear anything in her hair to I want matching hair bows to my outfit even since I made her the Minnie Mouse dress for her school dress up day. I do not mind though, it is a lot of fun and I loved how I was able to use fabric scraps for this bow.
As you can tell by the redness of her cheeks, she did a lot more twirling in her Daisy Dress. I did finally convince her to take off the dress and put on her pajamas without any tears. I thought I was done taking pictures….
So she picked lots of flowers…
She, of course, did some more twirly…..
She even gave me this gorgeous picture, as we picking up Little Dude from school….
I put the camera down, so Baby Girl, Little Dude and I could enjoy a little spring. Just a few hours later though Baby Girl got her Daisy Dress dirty and she cried once again. I immediately threw in the wash, as I am sure we will be wearing her Daisy Dress again soon! In fact, I may need to make her a few more. 🙂

I love your stories about Baby Girl. This is such a cute dress. I am working on one now.
Thank you! She always gives me the best stories. I cannot wait to see yours!
I love it! Adorable! How does the unfinished hem hold up?
Thanks! It has held up well. I even washed and dried the dress and it held up fine.
Just gorgeous, as usual!
Thank you Diane!
