A friend’s daughter turned four recently and I since I don’t get the opportunity to make fun little girls clothes for my child, I jump on the chance to sew up cute little dresses. I took advantage of Habitual’s Free Simple Sundress Pattern to create this cute little dress.
It was a quick little sew that I got done during one of Jude’s naps (thank goodness he takes long naps!). The hardest part was hemming the armscye (er. . . never heard that word before either? It’s really just the armhole). I struggled with getting the seams to fold on a curve but it ended up still looking cute. One of the things that stuck out to me in the tutorial was the attention to detail. The interior seams are french seams which lends itself to a nice finished look, even on the inside! I really like that the dress can become a shirt once the child outgrows the length of the dress. In all honesty, I kinda wanted to make this little dress into a shirt for myself it turned out so nicely – it looks like it’s from an upscale boutique. Hopefully this is the beginning of a lot of sewing in my new sewing room in the new house. 🙂
