"Mommy, today in art, we made collage birds and I'm wearing collage birds!" I love little coincidences like that!
I have tried to squeeze in a few little dresses in between teaching classes at Je's Bend and catching up on unfinished items, since late August, this is dress number 3 for Evangeline.
I sewed this dress using the Geranium Dress pattern by Rae Hoekstra, I have made it once before in a size 5, now, larger sizes are available, this is a size 7. E is six years old and on the taller side, so, a 7 is more practical and will last longer.
This dress is very easy to sew, I would say a confident beginner, for sure could have this done in a few hours. I have a serger, but Rae gives you instructions for finishing as if the maker does not own one. There are a few versions to try, I have one to show soon with a flutter sleeve and pockets.
