Dress obsessed..

Apparently I have a problem. I can't stop making dresses! It's not like my child needs another dress. In addition to the several I've made her so far this summer, she has a closet-full of other cute ones! But.. I.just.can't.stop! 

I blogged about making my 4th of July Sundress here and how I had cut material for two dresses. Well, today I finally finished the Apple dress. It is AMAZING! I am absolutely in love with the fabrics! After seeing the finished product for the 4th of July dress, I decided to change it up a bit with this one. I cut the main body of the dress into more of an a-line shape (just slightly), I gathered the top ruffle when I sewed it down and then also added the elastic band (which gathers it more) so it was more ruffly, and for the bottom piece, I folded it in half, sewed it on and didn't ruffle it. It made the overall length of the dress shorter and I think it's the perfect length! LOVE!

This is where I'm sewing down the ruffle, before adding the elastic. Since I
had changed the shape of the dress from the original one, I had extra fabric
for this strip, so I just gathered it up and sewed it down.

You've got to love the smiles from a 3 year old! <3


  1. Super cute! I just purchased the same apple fabric yesterday; I think it will be perfect for school.

  2. That's so cute. I love the fabrics you chose. And 3-year old smiles are priceless! :)
