Golden Days Dress and Heart Purse for Rosalie

I finally sewed a garment (and a cute purse too)! I made the cutest dress for Rosalie using a new fabric line called Golden Days by Amber Labau from Fancy Pants Design for Riley Blake Designs. I am by no means a seamstress, as many fellow sewist's and quilter's can attest to. Anytime I made a garment in the past, it usually came out lopsided somehow. I used Dottie Angel's little dress pattern for Simplicity, which was super easy, fun, and quick. Definitely one to try if you haven't already. 

Of course I couldn't just stop at the dress. I had to make a coordinating purse to go with it! I designed a Heart Drawstring purse using the cute plaids from Golden Days. Rosalie already has been wearing it around the house, stuffing all her little toys in it. Golden Days is perfect for Fall or back to school! The colors and patterns coordinate so well.

Here is what I made:

Rosalie's Dress (Dottie Angel Pattern) and Heart
Purse made and designed by me.

And here's Rosalie in the dress and purse. I had to bribe her with a lollipop to model for these pictures, and maybe some chocolate too!

Jack wanted to model too.

And here is more detailed shots of the Heart Purse I made for Rosalie:

Golden Days fabric is starting to hit stores, so check your local quilt shops or online!

Thank you!



  1. I adore the heart-shaped bag ... Do you have the pattern for it? So cute!! I made bags for my neighbor's 8 and 12 yr. old but the 5 year old wants something special ... She is adorable and I know she would love this bag. Thanks ..
