Here is Sweet pea's fourth of July dress for this year! I used my Wrap around dress tutorial, you can find it here. I used a Raddy Ann & Andy 4th fabric for her dress, even the sash "belt" is made from the strip from the top border of the fabric.
The only changes I made to this dress was I shorten the front wrap by 2" so that the belt would tie at hte side of her front instead of the back. I left the sash off the dress and made a long 2" belt and sewed it to the dress at both sides and just right before the belt ties into a bow at the side.
The belt goes the whole way around dress, I love the way it adds the little blue strips to red. (here is our new swing set for the kids my hubby put together too!)
We are now getting grass growing in our yard, we are all happy about this! Until this year we haven't been able to get any to grow due to the yard full of tress. (we had them cut down this past spring)
Don't you love it when you plan a dress and it comes out the way you plan it too, I know I do! And to think it was this time last year when I started to sew clothes for my little Sweet pea. I will have to post a picture of my first dress I sewn for her.
I have more of this fabric if anyone would like a dress like this one made up for them.
