The Red Dresss

This is the dress I made for my middle child, Alexa. She wanted the exact red dress on the pattern cover. I tried my best and she liked it. I had cut it out like two months ago, so when I finally sewed it together, it just fit! Hopefully she won't grow out of it too quick.

It's so wrinkled because I just washed it from Sunday's wearing and let it air dry. Next on the list is two dress for Sarah for church. I'm not sure which pattern I will use yet, maybe this one with long puffed sleeves. It is so much fun to sew for the girls- they look adorable in the dresses and it's so easy to fit them. Wish I could say the same for myself :(

That looks beautiful. I'm looking forward to making dresses for my little girl but so far we've been given so many clothes I haven't needed to make any. I figure as she gets older, I'll probably need to make them though based on what I see in the shops for older girls. For yourself, if you buy a multisize pattern then you can fairly easily adjust it to fit you by taking all your measurements and then using the different sizes for the different parts (so for example I usually use a couple of sizes larger for the hips than the waist so I just draw a line expanding from the smaller size at the waist to the larger size at the hips).
