This is the FIRST dress I've ever made for Molly. Brian began to lament her lack of handmade apparel. I suppose dresses are more fun to make for an older child. They can run around, pose and play in a dress. Photographing Molly was quite challenging. I had to choose from one of two poses.....sitting or sleeping. I also wanted her to hold some baby geese but was afraid she'd catch some sort of bird bacteria so this was my compromise.
I modeled this after a cute frock I saw on Emma and Avery. This grey and white smock-fit dress reminded me of the goose down I'd see in a pillow or blanket so I thought 'grey gosling' was most befitting. The soft translucent properties of the blouse reminded me of seeds on the head of a matured dandelion. I had the opportunity to make this a reversible dress in white eyelet but after my last experience I chickened out. It can be done....probably rather easily. Maybe I'll make another one in a different color down the road.
