Description

Update 12-5-13:  My daughter sent the spinning pictures last night and then today sent the one of L.J. sleeping in  her dress.  I guess she spun herself out!

Finally! I did some sewing this month and can post it. My little granddaughter is 3 today and Nana did some birthday presents for her, but her mom is on threadbias, so I didn’t want to put up the pictures till I’d given the gifts.

My granddaughter loves to wear dresses. I actually bought this fabric and pattern last summer, so it is not really seasonal looking, but it could probably be worn with pants and a little turtleneck in the winter. The fabric was featured in the summer time quilt shop-hop. Pattern is simplicity 2377.

This actually is a bit small for her!  I made her 2 other size 3 outfits recently that fit well with grow room.  I think this pattern must run small.

Love the colors, so rich and warm. Great dress for summer, but I like the idea do wearing it over leggings and shirt for winter. She will be delighted with this little dress.

That's a pretty dress, but what a cute little model!

What beautiful colors and you know it's perfect if she's spinning in it!

Thank you all. She didn't want to try it on at first and finally did last night a few weeks after her birthday. I had suspicions when it was complete that it looked a bit small and I was right. My daughter said it is a bit snug around the waist.

It is an easy pattern and I can make one in the next size up, but there is no more of this fabric.
