Blossoms and Bloomers

Thought I'd share my latest sewing project that I FINALLY finished.  After all, it is the middle of the summer and I did want the sweetie to get some wear out of it before the summer was gone or before she outgrew it!

My favorite fabric store is Thread.  It's a love/hate thing.  I love to go in there, but I hate having to decide which fabric to get!  These are the two I decided on.

This little dress pattern was so simple.

And it was made for several sizes.

Oh no, time to make the buttonhole here!  I hadn't made one yet with this sewing machine.  After some practice runs, it wasn't that bad.

The elastic casing for the bloomers required the most patience.

The bloomers are HUGE!  I know I chose the 6-12 month size, but I believe these would fit a 2 or 3 year old.

Finally, time to try it on.

I'm done, time to go play.

The end.


  1. Now that is sew cute. Pun intended, but she really is a sweetie. I love the fabric. And girls can go without their bloomers a time or two.

  2. What a sweet dress! I wish I could sew. Your granddaughter is a doll!

  3. That is beautiful! Even though the choice was hard, I'd say you made the right one, because the fabric combo is lovely!


Meet me at the Well and let me know what you think!
