I've been seeing all of the cute summer dresses being shared on IG and was inspired to try my hand at making one for my granddaughter. She told me after a sleepover that she was going to get dressed and find something yellow "because that's Pap's favorite color on me". How cute is that!
When she proudly held up a single yellow striped sock and announced that she'd found something to wear, (adorable, right?) After telling her what a great job she'd done, I offered to have her choose fabric from my sewing room and spent the day stitching things up.
Notions at my house are a disorganized mess but I managed to find bias tape. 1/2" wide elastic however sent me to the store where I could not resist the little buttons too. I'll have to make a headband because they didn't look right on the dress. She was thrilled to"help" every step of the way with a photo shoot finale in the front yard when we were done.
Armed with the confidence of the successful yellow dress and encouragement on IG, I spent the next day sewing a second, a modified Oliver & S Popover Sundress based on the free tutorial HERE
My non-quilts sewing actually started with an impromptu pillow case. There is something to be said for quick makes. It does the sewing mojo good.
