This growing girlie was in desperate need of a new summer dress. Although her other dresses still fit on top, they were getting super shorty….so it was time to pick out some fabric for a new dress.
I let her loose in the fabric stash and she came back with this amazing stretch cotton sateen from Jo-Ann Fabrics that I bought last Spring for a dress for me (as you can see that didn’t happen). But I think it looks so cute and summery on her and to tell you the truth she will probably wear this dress more than I would have worn one anyway 😉
The summer floral dress is made up of the bodice from Basic Bodice Dress (that will be realeased in August). Although I changed up the neckline a little bit to make more of a boatneck feel. I think next time I would lower the front a bit, but that’s for the next dress.
The sleeves are short capped sleeves and then a full gathered skirt (it’s almost 90 inches gathered in there) for a cute tween dress. She already had the belt and shoes…but they were perfect for the dress so that’s all we accessorized with and she loves it.
Any summer florals on your sewing tables? There still is enough fabric leftover for a pencil skirt…and I think that is next for me 😉
