Some more Emmy dresses!

I've had fun making these Emmy dresses for my niece, and since the Valentine's Day dress was a hit, I thought it would be fun to continue the holiday trend.  When I was in central Illinois last month for a concert, of course I had to go check out my old fabric stores!  I found the St. Patrick's Day hearts woven fabric at HF there, and the green interlock and ribbing came from my stash.  I had found the giraffe print as a remnant at JAF awhile back, and I had to buy it - my sister-in-law originally planned a giraffe-themed nursery, so I thought it would be perfect.  The brown interlock and ribbing was also purchased at JAF.

Nothing new to say about construction - these are both size 18 months, and the only difference from previous iterations was using a woven fabric for the skirt part (which is also an option listed in the pattern).  I think they turned out very cute!  (And, yes, I'm just behind in blogging - they really did get to my niece before St. Patrick's Day.)
