My regular readers will perhaps remember my summer sewing list? No?
Anyway, yesterday I could cross the first item of the list – a very simple summer dress for the little one.
(worn the Icelandic way, with warm leggings and a long sleeved top). You can almost never wear a dress like this here with out at least a t-shirt underneath. But I think it’s cute this way too.
It took me exactly an hour and twenty minutes to finish, from the first measurement, to the last stitch. And that is with a lot of help for the little one. She worked the foot control for the top and bottom hem (standing in from of my chair) and she was quite good and holding an even speed I must say.
She liked them all, and told me that she could use more dresses, and I could make her more, if I wanted too.
I followed this excellent tutorial and the only thing
I added was a little lace at the hem.
