We have a cute little granddaughter that just turned eight! I told her I'd make her a dress for her baptism. I really envisioned a lace dress, but had trouble finding
what was in my mind. Isn't that always the case! Anyway, I just happened to see this pretty eyelet the other day and knew I'd found the right fabric. Here's what I came up with. Hope she likes it. Also, hope it fits! It's hard sewing long distance!
The first time I saw New Look pattern #6487 I thought of one of my granddaughters. I love shirt dresses and thought this was a pretty cute one! I followed the patterned exactly and added a little belt with a D-ring closure. Hope she likes it!
I made this dress for the second time starting with Simplicity pattern #1433. I added some decorative stitching along the neckline and a little ribbon belt. This dress is not hard, but watch the seam allowances--some are only 3/8".
