That being said, I had this outfit finished before my accident. I went to our city's Junior League large yard sale a few weekends ago and toward the end, they had everything you could bag for $10 (it was a huge black garbage bag.) One of the things I threw in was this pretty navy floral adult maxi dress. I loved the border print. I planned to upcycle it. Then, I saw the Anywhere Dress from Go To Patterns and knew this dress would be perfect for it. You can see the pattern here http://gotopatterns.com/collections/girls-dresses/products/the-anywhere-dress-for-girls
So, I made the cap sleeve version using the adult dress as the fabric. I love how simple and effortless it looks. This pattern was a quick and easy sew. It uses facings instead of ribbing (I know some people are really afraid of using ribbing on the neckline.). Today's blog title is Anywhere, anytime because this dress fits that bill! Here is our version.
She had to use her new puppet in these pictures. She is taking a puppetry class at our local theatre and has loved it!
So, make sure to come back tomorrow. It may not be fancy, but it will be handmade. We all need quick and easy patterns to sew up, right? So, I am definitely looking for those right now!
