First Birthday Rainbow Dress

Being born on St. Patrick's Day, Maeve is bound to love rainbows!
So, I had to make her a rainbow dress, I had tons of ideas and inspiration from the internet, but ended up settling on a jersey knit dress, with ruffles on the back made from old t-shirts.  Comfort is what babies like best!
I used my favorite pattern Claire by Portabellopixie for the dress.  Before I sewed the pieces of the skirt together, I sewed on rows of rainbow colored ruffles that I made from 2" strips of old t-shirts.

And the birthday girl:
Happy First Birthday to my last baby!
