Summer's calling - Toddler Sundresses



Oh, I am so, so happy with these dresses. Love the colors, love the pattern, love how they turned out; Alexander Henry's "Juicy" paired with a couple of Michael Miller prints.

These dresses are made from the SewBaby Sundress pattern. You can find it here. It's a reversible, pinafore style dress that uses one piece for the outside and one piece for the lining. Super simple; except for the buttonholes ;-). But I found a solution for those, as mentioned here. My dresses are size 2T and they fit perfect, with some room to fit a shirt underneath if necessary. I can definetly recommend this pattern, well worth the money.





As a side note: Although, I made sure this time to have BOTH dresses done before having the girls try them on, a fight broke out nevertheless. This time over, who got to put hers on first! I just love it that they love it that I make clothes for them....;-)

These are GORGEOUS!

I have just the fabric for one for Miss M for winter to wear over a long sleeve shirt!

And I love the reversible - at a pinch, you can quickly turn it over and hide the dirty bits if you have to...
