Summer Dress--Take Two

I finally finished up my summer dresses for S today. I was really hoping to get them done last week, but with it being spring break for my other kids it wasn't happening! So, with the big kids back in school (Yeah!!) I could finally find the time to finish them during nap time. I'm like Leslie, though, now that they are done I am ready to move on to my next project. I am very happy how they turned out and am excited to "throw them on her" this summer! This really is a super easy project! And even though the pattern is out of print, I am SURE you can find one that looks just like it still! Happy Sewing!

In honor of our new family pets, I found this adorable "chicken" fabric!

S in her 'chicken dress' along with two of our chicks:

I was wanting bloomers to go under these dresses but the pattern I used didn't have one. I ended up using this pattern for them instead (McCalls 2053)!

We love the 4th of July at our house, so here is a version to go along with that! You can also get a better view of what the bloomers look like, too.


  1. Love the chicken fabric! And the bloomers!

  2. So cute! I can't believe how big your chicks are already.

  3. That is such cute fabric. Hey I saw an ad for this fabric in a magazine and thought of you girls (I'm an old roomie of Leslie's by the way).

  4. Super cute! Love the fabric & everything.
