These were done in sprint sewing fashion this afternoon. I was (AM) dead tired, but I wanted to avoid napping because that has been leading to staying up late that night. So, I sewed to stay awake.

I’m really happy with these. And, more importantly, so are the girls!! The little one in particular is ecstatic. Both that I (finally) made her a dress (she asks for one every single time I sew) and that she matches her big sis.

Missy is nearly the same height as me, so I was able to use the same pattern as my Luck of the Concrete Jungle Dress for her. I just placed the edge of the pattern piece a little beyond the fold so that the dress would be a bit smaller. I think that worked just fine.

The Sweetheart dress has pattern pieces to download, but my little girl is a tall-ish, lanky five year-old. I made a slightly larger bodice by placing the pattern piece a bit behind the fold and cutting a little beyond the edge of the pieces. It worked a treat. In a sweet little touch, the pink buttons used on both dresses were in the sewing box that my grandmother gave me!

  1. Those are fantastic! And, crazily, I used that same fabric for my first kcwc project, and a Simplicity pattern, too. I’m so happy to see your lovely dresses!
