Birthday season starts in July and goes through October in our family. I love to sew and making special gifts is so much fun. I usually make Princess H. a dress and sometimes a poncho for her birthday. I asked her which fabric in my stash she wanted me to use to make her a dress. I was hoping to make a fancy dress that she could wear to church during the cooler months, but oh no Princess had other ideas: "I want a dress I can play in with no buttons so I can do it myself. Buttons in the back are too hard to do." Well, there you go. Clearly she is an opinionated child.☺
I used "City Park" by Alexander Henry to make this dress. I kind of suggested this pattern to avoid the dreaded zipper and will use pearlized snaps as the closure. I didn't add too many details because she just wants it for play so it was quick and easy. One present down, more to come.
