I wanted to make my girl a sweet fall dress with some details (of course). I started with my idea from this dress for the collar and I love the basic A-line shape. I had planned on using my simplicity 3511 pattern for making the dress... but the babes was asleep when I had time to start and getting the pattern out would have woken her up - so I drew my own!

I found this great striped fabric (via a sheet on sale for $4!). The yellows, taupe and navy stripes just screamed fall time. I wanted to do a fun pocket on it and I think hedgehogs are cute but wasn't sure if they are fall.
Whenever I am unsure of something I ask my husband - he's double clever. He assured me hedgehogs are fall, and he knows this because when he was in primary school they used to have to poke piles of leaves with sticks to make sure there were no hedgehogs hibernating in them (apparently there were a lot of students at his school that liked to start fires in piles of leaves).
some vintage buttons I picked up at the thrift store for 10cents match perfectly with the ol' hedgehogs nose
