Description

My grand-daughters just finished their first sewing projects. We used the BurdaStyle pattern Girl’s Maxi Dress 06/2015 #133. We made it short and used a solid for the dress and a cute polka dot print for the top. We shortened the top, to keep the proportions in scale and made wide shoulder straps because their school’s dress code doesn’t allow spaghetti straps.
The younger one chose pink and the top has sparkle which doesn’t show up in this photo.
They both did a terrific job!

Material Notes

We chose a cotton knit so it would be easy care.
