I finished my two Halter Sun Dresses for my 5 year old Giselle…so I let her choose which one she wants for her Easter Dress..
Giselle picked out this pattern sometime ago and has been bugging me about making her dresses…So she picked out the style and I guided her through my material…she had fun knowing she was in the design process not to mention she made sure that my applique’s on the one dress looked like the picture on the pattern packet..too funny..
The Pattern: New Look 6690
She was drawn to the Halter style but there is another style on there as well..
I used a size 4 pattern pieces and it really turned out great the only thing I adjusted on it was the elastic length for the back..I used the size 3 guide instead of the size 4…
This as you see was a very simple dress but how cute is it!! And she loves them
She did decide on which one for Easter…that would be the pink one (of course)..
Just a construction note too…I used my gathering foot for the ruffle on the bottom….worked like a charm…I loved it and made the ruffle go by really fast…and very easy to pin…All I did was take sample fabric to get the amount of gathering needed…….
So now it is on to my other daughters 10 year old Skort..I will make for her as part of her Easter outfit…and as a very wonderful gal around here (MaryinColorado) said….I will enjoy the process…and I am diving right in…soon
