My older daughter loves dresses. In her perfect world, she would wear one every day and she’s felt that way since she was about 18 months old. When I first started sewing about a year ago, I knew that I really wanted to make dresses for my girls. While I haven’t made much in the way of clothing, and certainly skirts outnumber the dresses, the dresses I have made – she absolutely loves. She chose several feedsack fabrics for me to make dresses for her after watching the movie Kit Kittredge, the American Girl movie that came out last year. Here’s her favorite… (and note the posing for the camera!!)
This was a great pattern. It’s Simplicity 4927 and it’s a good beginner’s pattern. Go on…make one. She’ll love it.
