sunflower dress

 On with the parade.  This was actually the first attempt on this version of the tunic/dress.  I had this sunflower fabric (long ago from Valori Wells) in my stack forever, like too forever.  

I was thinking of getting rid of it, but then I figure I might as well dice into it and see what it would look like.  My stash is getting smaller-ish, still too much, I suppose I’ll be happy when I can fit it all in my shelves again.  The good thing is that my scrap bins are overflowing.  Yay!

Anyway, Emily loves her dress, it’s so cute to see her button it up.

    So cute. I love the dress. a perfect run around during the summer dress. It could also be easily adapted for fall too, by wearing a shirt underneath. I think kids have the funnest clothes some times.

    Very sweet…. and the sun dress too! My daughter was also a little blondie! I use to love sewing for my little girl!! I made summer dresses, fancy ruffled & lacy dresses for weddings, pj.s, nightgowns, robes, corduroy pants, tops and a swimsuit cover-up. Good times!
