day 15 :: 2009 craft books

2009 craft books :: Absolutely A-Line: 1 Easy Pattern = 26 Adorable Dresses for Girls by Wendi Gratz

i already sewed C a black corduroy dress using this book, the full pattern is included with the book & the dresses are sizes 3-8 years. the whole concept of the book is a fabulous idea ! just from one simple dress pattern, so many variations can be made... any dress sewn from this book could be added to the Lark Books Textiles & Fabric Arts flickr group.

there are a couple of more dresses i'd like to sew from this book, including the one in the above photo which is called the Candy Stripes dress. i also want to sew the Double Duty dress which is a reversible dress, but unfortunately i don't have a photo of that one to share.

i wanted to sew this Summer Sweetness dress...

& here is C wearing the one i sewed her, i made it with linen & put some lovely crochet lace trim for the empire waist which is gathered by the use of brown ribbon elastic.

this will be her Easter dress this year

see you on Monday for day 16, have a great weekend !
