I’ve had this pattern for a long time. The little girl I used to sew dresses for using this pattern is now in college. Now there is another little girl in the family, so I am getting out my dress patterns and having fun sewing up some dresses. This dress uses up a yard of knit fabric from the stash. The color is an apricot pink scattered with slightly sparkly stars.
Because my niece lives in the Midwest, I have to get her measurements by email and can’t try the garments on her. This knit is not very stretchy and sews easily, but I wasn’t sure the neckline would fit over her head. To make sure, I put a little opening in the back and found a button that echoed the star theme:
The front is trimmed with ribbon and beads.
Here are the fabric and trims that are going to be used for the next dress:
