Looking for a new dress for your daughter, grand-daughter, or niece? Tired of looking for and not finding an appropriate length dress? Lindsay from The Cottage Mama shares her pattern for a summer picnic dress.
This dress will become a favorite to the special little girl receiving it. Lindsay’s instructions will fit ages 12 months to 4 years. With detailed instructions and pictures to help you along, you will have this done in short time. Your child will stand out with her special dress.
Lindsay tells us that this is a good beginner project because it does not have any buttons or zippers. If you do not have any piping, and do not know how to make some, you can always buy it in the store. She also shares that she likes to add her own label to her creations. The piece looks professional and not so much handmade. Make sure you pre-wash all your fabric and have an iron ready for pressing it smooth prior to cutting the pattern.
