Easy Summer Dress
After walking through a vintage shop last weekend that sold handmade little girl dresses, I got totally inspired to make one for Avery.
I looked online and found really easy instructions for making a very basic dress, using leftover fabric from the birthday party I threw for my sister-in-law.
These are some shots I took around our house...
I'm definitely a beginner at this whole sewing thing, but if I can do it, anyone can! It just takes a little time and patience.
Here are the step-by-step instructions that I followed. The instructions are for a pillowcase dress, but I just used my leftover fabric. And I added the ruffle to the hem of the dress.
A few days ago as I was putting Avery to bed for her nap, she said, "Mama, it's not time for a nap yet! Just chill up!"
Oh.my.word. Ok, missy, not only is that NOT the correct terminology, but I am WAY too young to have my daughter telling me to chill out!!
Wow. So NOT ready for that stage of life!
Happy weekend everyone! :)
