This is the little dress that I mentioned sewing as a birthday present during KCWC. I think it’s so cute, and it was really easy. I started with my free The Tank pattern. I lengthened it and added some flare to the “skirt”. I grabbed the hood from my Charlie Tee pattern and used it in place of the neckband. Finally, I added a second layer just under the hem and used the rolled edge setting on my serger to make a lettuce edge on both hem layers.
The birthday girl wore her dress to our house last week, and I was able to snap a few modeled pictures to show you! It works well for chasing bubbles with big sister.
It’s perfect for sliding, too!
I also just have to show off the gift that Samantha made. She’s really becoming quite the accomplished knitter. Is this the sweetest little doll you’ve ever seen?
Today, I’m back to work on those summer wardrobes for the boys. Officially, June 21st is the first day of summer, and I have every intention of being done before then. It’s really been summer here in Dallas for quite some time, though, so I’d like to finish sooner rather than later!
It is so adorable!! Comfy and cute!
Love that dress! So, so cute! Your daughter is quite the knitter!

Thank you so very much for the best dress ever! I put Rie in it about 3 times a week, it is very durable to keep up with my little busy body. And I have to admit I stole the doll from Rie, will i let her play with her once in a while, but she is mine I say, mine! LOL!!!
