I am sewing up a few summer things and this sundress is one of the favorite things that I have ever made. I drafted the free pattern last year and it goes from a girls size 3 to a girls size 8. I sewed up the size 6 last year for Hannie and I sewed up the size 8 this year. It is a bit big but I would rather go with a bit big so she can wear it all summer long.
I love the bias tape straps because they can fit for a much longer time by just tying them tighter or looser.
And shoulder bows are just plain cute on girls.
The fabric is actually a Target sheet set that I found on sale and I love it. I still have so much of the sheet set left that I decided to do some summer pajamas for all the kids out of it. I have them all cut out…and hopefully will get them all sewn up soon.
The other thing I love about sewing with sheets is how they just get softer and softer with each wash.
The pattern is a super easy one and is a perfect sewing project for an afternoon. You can find all the FREE pattern here with all the directions as well.
Do you find it easier to have sewing time in the summer or harder? I am one of those moms that has mandatory resting/reading time…so I still have my half hour of sewing time, it makes me stay sane 😉
