Anita has had such a growth spurt this summer that almost all her knit dresses are now too small. So what’s a sewing mom to do? I think you can guess the answer, wink-wink!
I started with The Oxford Top & Dress from Shwin Designs. This is a very fast sew and a perfect dress for active girls. There are so many options in the pattern, top or dress length, different sleeve options, hood, turtle neck or regular rib neckband.
One dress is certainly not enough so I made another one.
I was afraid it would look too much like a nightgown since it is so pink so I added the hood to this one. I see now that I forgot to press over the hem, so never mind that.
She is very happy with her first dress with a hood.
Now I just have to make her some more dresses fit for school!
