This month we are the guest designers at The Sew What Club with our good friend Kelly of Sewing in No Man’s Land. And this month one of the children’s patterns is a dress that both liZ and I have been making for literally years. (For real, THIS dress, THIS dress and THIS dress were all made from this pattern we drafted years ago, and I could have put 5 more tags in…we LOVE to sew this dress.)
The Sew What Club patterns can be purchased on a yearly or monthly basis and are available in children’s and women’s patterns. And each month there is a new designer who does a guest pattern that is available for that month. The dress itself is based off a vintage pattern so the smaller sizes are “vintage short” which is so cute on little girls. The older girls sizes are made just at knee-length but we do show you in the pattern how to lengthen the dress to make a knee length. It is a super fast sew with no zippers and no buttonholes and a dress that you will sew over and over.
I sewed up the size 12 for Hannie (one size bigger) because this girls is growing like a weed. I’ve made this dress short as a tunic with leggings for school and the peter pan collar is great for a dressed-up dress.
PS—We also have a really cute and easy Holiday Project up at The Crafting Chicks today….that you are going to want to make…go see it HERE.
