Apple blossoms and polka dots

apple blossoms

The apple trees are blooming in my orchard and, even though the weather isn’t cooperating, I’m lusting after the summer prints in the fabric shop and thinking about all the little girls’ dresses I could make. I love this dress pattern – super cute, a great way to combine fabrics, and easy enough to finish in one day.

The fabrics are from Hollyhill Quilt Shoppe (which has horrible hours, but great fabrics) and the pattern is Fig Tree & Co’s Polkadots and Summer dress. The pattern only goes up to six 6 (which is the size I used) but I’m thinking it’s simple enough to “expand,” so I’m going to try it in an eight-year-old size next. The pattern also includes a bandana, which looks so adorable in the pattern photo, but I had my doubts as to whether I’d ever get it on my daughter’s head (much less get it to stay there . . .)

This pattern is simple enough for a beginning seamstress, with clear directions and a chance to learn a few new techniques (like pleats and finishing off arm holes and neck hole).

    I was looking at your site and you have some very nice ideas. I don’t normally request a pattern, but I see everyone above me did so I am wondering if you could advise of where you got the pattern. Did you design it?
