Sunday Dresses

Having a little girl to sew for is awesome!  I get carried away sometimes because it is SO easy to make really really cute little girl outfits.

Another Dress

At one point, I had mentioned to a few friends that I would like Haley to have a new dress every Sunday for church. Don’t worry – they quickly shot me down. 🙂 52 dresses in a year may be a little over board. Plus I can’t follow through on things like that. In any case, it doesn’t stop me from making her an occasional Sunday dress!

Ruffle & Fabric closeup

I used Moda’s Sorbet fabric for the skirt. And the ruffle is from Timeless Treasures – a print called Candy Polka Dot. The top denim fabric was something I have had in my stash for years – sorry I don’t remember where it came from.


The kids go back to school in early August.  Even if I can’t realistically make Haley a new dress for every Sunday, I could make her a few new school outfits. I’m dying to get her some ModKid outfits whipped up.


And when I look in my Kid’s Clothing Patterns on my website, I’d say that I have many options beyond that. Wouldn’t you agree? Yep, I’m pretty lucky to have a little girl.   🙂

PS. In case you don’t get my newsletter, currently ALL Amy Butler products are on sale.  Sandi Henderson patterns and fabrics are on 15% off AND Oliver & S patterns are 30% off!!!! Plus lots of other great things in the Sale Section!

    Enjoy your little girl while you can.. If she’s anything like mine you’ll turn around and she’ll be telling you how un-cool pretty, little, fancy, girl things are. “If it’s not from Justice Mom it’s not cool.” Blah! Your dress is very sweet though. I’d wear it if people wouldn’t think I was trying to relive my younger years :).

    This is darling!!! And I agree–don’t know what I would do without a little girl to sew for. Tulle and ruffles . . . the works!

    I do agree with all the ideas you have presented in your post.
    They’re very convincing and will certainly work. Still, the posts are very short for newbies. Could you please extend them a little from next time? Thanks for the post.
