My new summer dress




yep I made this
I drafted the
pattern I sewed it

Can you tell I am proud of my self?

This cute fabric has a great beach border and a cute blue fabric the blue fabric has a cornucopia of sells and star fish on it.
My daughter picked this fabulous fabric out. I came up with the design and sewed it.
this dress is a size 7-9 girls dress it hits a little below the knee on most girls.
26+ inch top (elastic in the top)
27 inch long from top to bottom.
the skirt is full and playful.

That is my very nice neighbor Andrea's daughter she was a very willing model. She looked so cute!
What do you think?

his was a fairly easy thing to draft too
I used the arm wholes from another pattern and I just used 2 yards of fabric for the very very full skirt. I used my ruffler foot to gather the 2 yards of fabric.
I did a little gather in the middle of the front fabric. I used a gather stitch for this not my ruffler foot.
Made a stay of about the size I wanted the final to be and sewed it to the front turned right side out and there ya go the front is done.
the back I just used a but of elastic.

(I only bought 2 yards I have to go but more now to make one of these for my daughter.)
