Summer is birthday season in our house. My boys are December and January meaning that most of their friends are summer babies too. Every weekend there's a birthday party to attend!
My standard present is usually Lego or a puzzle but I had two close friend's daughters birthdays coming up and I knew they'd love a handmade dress. Without promising much, I asked them for their daughter's measurements and then set to work finding a simple but playful dress pattern. The Oliver + S Pinwheel dress fit the bill and I found the printed cotton in my stash.
I had enough of the cotton to easily make two dresses so I made them exactly the same. They'll just have to coordinate their outfits!
