Sew: Summer Dress for Miss O


As I don't have any girls of my own (probably a good thing!), I take great pleasure in sewing dresses for Christmas and Birthdays for my niece, Miss O.

I have a large collection of skirts made in Amy Butler fabrics that I made soon after having my boys and now don't fit me. So I've stashed them away to make in to skirts and dresses for Miss O. I simply ripped out the zip, sewed up the centre back again and laid the pattern onto the skirt. I even used the existing hem to simplify things further.

I downloaded this free pattern from the internet months ago and can't for the life of me remember where it is from. It is a simple A-line with cut outs for the armholes. Mr N picked the ribbon. He is good like that.

So, Merry Christmas Miss O and all my family in Queensland!! We will miss you all this year but look forward to another great Christmas together next year.

  2. Soooooo cute! You'll have to show me how to make one for Little M

  3. That is very pretty, and a great use of a gently loved skirt.
