But that means there hasn't been all that much sewing and crafting going on. Luckily, when spring hit a couple of months ago and there was still snow on the ground I did create a few things that I haven't shown you yet.
Like this cute little sundress for my niece.
I just used up a remnant I had and this pattern from 1981:
I'm pretty sure I just used view D and lengthened it to use up as much of the fabric as I had.
I get to see my niece next month so then I'll find out if this will be a dress or a tunic. I think it's a little long for a top.
I added some pretty vintage lace on the bottom hem to give it an extra girly touch.
And I just used bias tape around the armholes to get a nice clean finish.
I love the versatility of this style. It can last a little girl for years even as she grows.
Do you recognize this fabric? It was a remnant from this dress I made a few years ago~
