I recently sewed a summer dress for my daughter. This project is so simple but had been incubating since last year! ðŸ¤¦ðŸ»â€â™€ï¸ We discussed the design she wanted (sleeveless and knee length) and bought interlock at Joannâ€™s. She loved the stripes and dots, thought it was so sophisticated, â€œlike the kind of dress youâ€™d see in New York!â€ (New York, I love it!)
I chose the racerback dress from Hey June Handmade, a great free pattern. The biggest size was too small for my tall 9-year-old, so I graded it up another size (winged it).
The dress is super easy to assemble, only three pieces. I cut and applied the neckband and armscye bindings by using Sarah Veblenâ€™s foolproof technique. Coverstitched the hem and that was it. Itâ€™s a winner!
