You all are pretty smart.  Indeed, I made a sundress.


And, no, it is not for me!  This is a little one – European size 90 or 18m/2T/3T (There is a similar one in this book).  See that is the beauty of this dress – with the ties at the shoulders and the elastic thread up top, there is growing room.  Gotta love that.


Thank you, Hannah, for turning me on to the wonders of elastic thread.  I was a bit skeptical, but once I started sewing, I knew this was going to work.  It was simple and easy.  I found myself wondering what took me so long.  Fun to make, I tell you!

I find this type of dress hard to resist.  I remember wearing them when I was a kid and I just love them on my girls.  I think it would also make a cute top to wear over shorts.  That was Jane’s request.  Kate has put in an order for a dress.  They have both picked fabrics from the stash.  Good!  That means more sewing for me!

I would be happy to make a tutorial if you all want.  Let me know and I will get on it.

Enjoy your weekend!
