Show-and-tell Tuesday: Summer dresses


Summer and blue seersucker ... what a cool, crisp, classic combination for a little girl's sundress. This was the first of several dresses I've made over the past couple of weeks.


This one was a total breeze to make, thanks to the easy "Sunny Day Dress" tutorial offered by Erin at the House on Hill Road.


I had this yellow stripe fabric in my stash with the intent of backing a quilt with it. It's much better suited to a little girl's sundress, don't you think? It looks like the yoke seam is going all wonky on the right-hand side, but I assure you it's straight as an arrow...just nudged upward by the evergreen backdrop.


And finally, a three-tiered skirt out of some sturdy cotton from my stash.

I did a lot of thinking while making these cute little numbers. I should have enjoyed the process a lot more than I did, and I finally figured out why. I guess today is the "Show" part of Show-and-tell Tuesday. Tomorrow, I'll tell.

I love the dresses. You are so talented. Makes me sad I only have boys. Is there a dress in my size available? (Just kidding)

There you are! I just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these dresses. I've got to get out of this bed and do some of these for Hannah. Gonna check out the tutorial. A friend and I were just talking about this the other day. She'll be excited to know that I have located a free tutorial.
