The Dresses

This will be a quick post so that you can see the dress that I made for my granddaughter who lives in Kansas. You will recognize the dress from a previous post, however, seeing the dress on is always nicer, don't you think? Since none of these granddaughters live nearby, I could not make any adjustments to the back piece that I had elasticized by using elastic thread. I would have cut the back piece smaller on Ashlynn's dress... maybe even Reilly's.

Again, the pattern is designed by Izzy & Ivy and is called 'Kayla Bubble'. As you can see by the picture, I did not make the bottom portion of the dress into a bubble as instructed, but instead added a contrasting piece of fabric and then simply hemmed it. Also.. remember that the girls wanted their dresses longer as that apparently is the current style.

The dress on:

The back of the dress....

Here is one more picture of the dresses that I made for my granddaughters who live up in Sacramento.... a day out with their dad, my son.

Have a great weekend and come by for a visit again!

She wore it to church a couple of weeks ago and received a ton of compliments!
