A Flower Dress

I made Sweet pea this adorable dress last night. I seen the tutorial for it over at Sewing in No Mans Land a couple of days ago and just fell in love with it! Her has a gathering stitch and buttons across the top of hers but I made mine with the elastic around the neck line.

Her tutorial was very easy to follow and the dress went together in 1 hour, it would have been less but I made the hem too long and had to take it up about 2". I really do love this dress pattern.  
I used a light weight fabric, very nice for hot weather. And best of all this dress is very confortable too! She has been wearing it all day. :) I am going to make one or two more of these dresses up!

Happy Sewing!!

    I took one of her shirts to get the top/waist width. I then figuered out how wide I wanted the bottom, (just eyed it) then drew a strait line to the two. It made a angle like the side of the "A". I tryied it on her to get the hem lenght right after I finished the top of the dress. At first it was way too long. I hope this helps!

  7. Thank you, Sharon! :.)
    It definitely helps to get a little assessment. As a beginner it is always so hard to decide for the right measurements.

  8. Pedilu,
    let me know how it comes out. :)
