One of my goals this year has been to incorporate more dresses into my repertoire.💃🏻 With a toddler that refuses any and all naps, a son’s soccer schedule that takes up many evenings and the majority of our weekends, as well as piano lessons and swimming squeezed into there, and a husband that is rarely home, it’s been tough to find the *extra* time that these projects require over some of my other items. BUT…. I have a slew of new dress patterns and fun ideas and am determined to make it work. 👊🏻After all, I haven’t purchase a store-made skirt or dress for my girls in over a year now. 😉
The first dress I couldn’t wait to introduce to you guys was the Sally dress. I stumbled upon this pattern Shannon created when I was perusing her blog over at Very Shannon . com and I instantly fell in love with it.😍
It’s simplicity had my heart skip a beat.
It’s sooooo versatile. Dress it up. Dress it down. Short sleeves. Longer sleeves. Sleeveless. Combine it with a turtleneck or a long-sleeve shirt in the winter or just enjoy as is, once we get those warm sun rays back.
Oh … and all the various fabric combinations! A dream come true.
I started out with a dress for my daughter’s father-daughter dance at school and haven’t stopped sewing it since. If you’re looking for one to spruce up your daughter’s wardrobe, send me a message. I have some amazing fabrics, I haven’t been able to cut into yet.
