Penelope's 3rd birthday was coming up soon and I knew I wanted to make the Family Reunion Dress by Oliver + S. I knew if I made Penelope one I would have to make Gweniveve one too so I ordered each of them fabric that they would love. Gweniveve of course loves blue and Penelope is a pink or purple girl and I found that Anna Marie Horner fabric was on sale so I bought the pattern and the fabric at the same place. Gweniveve's dress is Anna Marie Horner, Loulouthi, Summer Totem fabric.
Penelope's is Anna Marie Horner, Innocent Crush, Bubble Burst fabric. On each of the dresses are zippers and not the buttons in the back.
Penelope's was rather large and I didn't want to fix it so I gave it to Gwenieve since it fits her perfectly. For some reason this pattern is dead on in size where the Ice Cream Dress runs small and I was going off of that pattern more. Oh Well. This just meant that I needed to make Penelope another dress.
Here is the 3rd and final Family Reunion Dress. It is a 3T on the pattern I just made it longer since my girls are so tall.
Penelope loved it and it was a very successful birthday!
Back in June the girls also had the Ice Cream Dress which was made with Kona solids and Remix by Ann Kelle. I only have pictures from my phone but that is better than nothing right???
Gwen's of course is blue.
