April was a busy month for my family which meant not much sewing was done. I did learn how to make a sew-together-bag and a jelly roll race quilt top. The latter I will make into a baby quilt for a new mom.
Several months ago, I popped into the Smocking Bird and saw the cutest dress and just had to make it. The pattern is Frannie by Children’s Corner.
I loved the seersucker fabric and teal gingham combination! The pattern and fabric are so perfect for summer. I bought the pink, teal and white flamingo fabric from Farmhouse Fabrics along with the pattern. I bought the teal gingham from The Smocking Bird.
It is lined with the gingham and is very easy to make. I always dread gathering a ruffle however this one was not bad at all.
The sleeves are adjustable to fit the child. This will also possibly extend the life of the dress for many two summers instead of just one.
If you have any questions or comments, please let me know.
