Birthday Party Dress

My baby brother (he’s 23 so not really a baby I guess) is getting married  next week and so I thought it was the perfect opportunity to get back into my sewing and to make the girls little matching dresses for the wedding. Generally I really don’t like matching outfits but these dresses are so cute I thought it would look gorgeous not tacky(I hope!)

Here is Elsa’s dress (Oliver & S Birthday Party Dress) minus the buttons. I am yet to buy the buttons so it is just sitting on the hanger with a few pins to keep it all in place.

I loved sewing this dress but I did find the pleats challenging. I am a bit of a perfectionist and so I undid the stitching a number of times in the pleats to get them sitting as close to perfect as I could. They are not perfect but I am happy with the result.


  1. This looks beautiful, matching dresses like this will be perfect for the special day :)

  2. Meika this is adorable, I love the red - makes me even more keen to try this pattern out!

  3. LOVE IT. Matching dresses are so cute for a wedding. It looks amazing. Well done.

  4. the girls are going to look adorable in their matching dresses. You did an awesome job on them, they look fantastic.
