 Day 3 :: Spring Kids Clothes Week

un, deux, trois, nous irons au bois...
 many thanks to a dear French friend who mailed this Suzanne pattern to me

this was the first time i followed a sewing pattern en francais

my parents would be proud that i've put their money to good use ~ using the French minor i got in college
 the Suzanne dress pattern has simple construction ~ no buttons, no zipper, no ties, no snaps, no elastic, no bias tape ~ it just slips over the head

such a unique style & it's reversible as in it looks exactly the same on the front & the back
i liked the Suzanne pattern so much i sewed my daughter 3 of them... one made out of a Liberty of London scarf (remember all the Liberty of London fabulousness that was at Target spring 2010?) & the other 2 were sewn out of cotton print fabric i got last summer at a flea market

these should make great summer dresses & nice beach cover-ups

bonne journee mes amies, a demain !

PS Happy Mother's Day to all you moms out there :)
