Description

I made these summer dresses for two adorable little girls aged 6 and turning 9 this month. The older girl loves purple and butterflies so when I found purple butterfly chiffon in my local fabric shop I just had to make something for her with it! I also bought some yellow chiffon for her younger sister and decided to make them each a cute summer dress. I shirred the bodices, over locked the seams, cover stitched the straps and hemmed the chiffon with a perfect tiny pin hem (tutorial on my website)​.
