Description

This is the first of children’s dresses made to match my teenage daughter’s. It is made with the same fabric for Sam’s dress except in a size 5. I used a 1 inch deep hem and used contrast fabric for the tie. To finish the armholes, I used leftover quilt binding scraps. It adds an unexpted punch of color.

It is based on Habitual’s Simple Sundress"

I did not make the french seams suggested in the pattern because I have a serger.

My daughter like this version so much she has recommended another with the side shoulder tie.

This will be a give for Gracie’s 5th birthday so I will get pictures of her modelling after her party is over.

Material Notes

Sale fabric from my local quilt shop – 44/45" cotton calico; For the bias tape I used leftover quilt binding scraps to add a little punch.
