Another Spring Favorite from M5793
Whew! I needed a little bloggy break after finishing up my pattern last month. The computer work was intense so I’ve been busy just sewing and sewing and sewing these last couple of weeks. Trouble with that is it leaves no time for photo taking or blogging. So now I’m SUPER behind with posting all the dresses I’ve made lately!
I realized though that I had made a set of dresses for the girls this spring that I had never posted about, and they have been a favorite this year. Here it is, another variation of my all time favorite M5793:
These were made for a special occasion this spring. I made a pleated skirt rather than a gathered skirt and lengthened the tulle underskirt a little bit (a little too much as it turns out, oh well).
I made them matching shrugs, using my easy knit shrug tutorial and added a little ribbon flower embellishment at the neckline – the girls LOVED this detail.
These dresses had BIG bows in the back – my favorite part.
And what’s a new dress without a new hair accessory?
Alas, they have been too busy this spring/summer making “cupcakes” in the mud outside to be modeling dresses and taking photos with me, so I’m lacking photos of them wearing much of what I’ve made them lately, but that’s OK with me. Summer is so short here, we must enjoying it while we can!
Make sure you stop by my pattern shop and check out my first pattern, the Cutie Capris! I have a fun giveaway planned for next week – stay tuned for it!
