Pink Dresses for two little girls

The dresses I made for Anna and Jessica to match their pretty pink sun hats are finally ready to be delivered! Whew! This was a project that should have had a very quick turnaround, but events conspired against me to drag it out several weeks. Sometimes you just can't win! Anyway, my knee is better than better, the trip to NYC is over, and whatever illness I came down with after returning home is hopefully on the mend, so I'm slowly getting caught up on my list of things-to-do.

Here's how they turned out...

Pink DressesTwo pretty pink butterfly dresses...

Pink Dresses...for two cute little sisters.

Pink DressesAnna's dress has little puffy capped sleeves with a band...

Pink DressesJessica's little dress has plain capped sleeves.

Pink DressesAnna's dress on the left has a plain hem and Jessica's has a little flounce at the bottom to add a bit of girly detail. These were made from Simplicity patterns 2688 for Anna's and 2425 for Jessica's in case you want to check them out at your local fabric shop. The fabric is from Joann's and I noticed it was recently featured in their circular along with other summer fabrics. It is seersucker and very bright pink! Perfect for girly summer dresses!

Now here's something you don't see every day...

Toys R Us Ferris Wheel...a four story ferris wheel inside Toys R Us! Of course this was in New York City, and of course we couldn't pass up the opportunity to ride it.

Scooby Doo car Toys R Us Ferris WheelWe got the Scooby Doo car!

Scooby Doo car Toys R Us Ferris WheelAnd of course Shaggy was there with his box of Scooby snacks and a huge sandwich! Another one of those once-in-a-lifetime experiences!

Happy Stitching!

  • Beautiful dresses! Congratulations! Despite the fact that here we are facing the beginning of Winter (=Buenos Aires) ... do you think it would be possible to adapt them for a 7 year old girl? Would you share the patterns and/or simple instructions with me? I am begginer! Thanks in advance! Gabriela, gschwarzbaum@gmail.com
    Perhaps you could also guide me to other links to your knowledge where I could get patterns for dresses for little girls. Thanks!
