Little dress for a little friend

Baby Button has a little friend who is a very cute little lady.  We got to give her a gift in a "Secret Santa".  Even though it won't end up being that secret, I couldn't resist the chance to make her a little dress myself.  Plus, all I had to buy were the buttons.  THE AMAZING SPARKLY BUTTONS!  Behold:

Whoa there, buttons!
I used up some of the purple linen I had lying around from making one of my first dresses ever (so that makes it about 12 years old, eerrrp).  Then I made some hot pink piping from a ribbon I found, and used some bright pink lining fabric left over from a prom dress I made.

The pattern the Vivienne Toddler Jumper and it's free, see here at BurdaStyle.

I hope she'll enjoy wearing it!
