We had family photos taken when Alice turned one, and I couldn’t be happier with them. Alice is quite the serious, skeptical kid in public, so we were nervous that subjecting her to a photo session would be rough. But Alice was in a great mood and the photographer very sweet, so we ended up with some adorable photos.
Who do you think Alice looks like? We can never decide!
I made Alice’s dress from the Butterick See & Sew B5639 pattern which only cost me $2.99 at Joann Fabrics.
On the front of the pattern envelope there is a red box that says “YES! It’s easy.” Luckily, that was true, and I was able to sew the dress and bloomers in less than three hours. Which was useful as I started it the night before and finished it 10 minutes after we were supposed to leave to meet the photographer.
She got to wear her cute summer dress a few more times before the rain set in here in Oregon. It’s officially fall here now!
