simple summer dress with embroidery

A few years ago I made this cute little dress
for Miss C.

While she still a petite girl,
her legs keep on getting longer!

here is a close up of the embroidery.

I used a pattern from the Sew Beautiful magazine,
issue 119 and the machine embroidery design that came with the pattern.
(free on the web side)
I even used entredeux and home made binding!

 I decided to make her a new one,
but to simplify it a little:
no entredeux and cute hand embroidery.

Remember this post ?

yes it is for this dress!

and here it is:

A cute summer dress, made of white pique for the top,
flower fabric from Stylecrest
and white imperial batiste.
The blue is an unusual color and I was not able to match it to any fabric,
so I used it for the binding.

The back has no embroidery.

She likes it!
And yes we are having a sunglasses phase!
Read the last Fancy Nancy: "spectacular spectacles"?
Then you understand!!

Happy sewing!


  1. I love both of these little dresses. And the model makes them shine! Love the kitty embroideries!

  2. So pretty! Maybe you will inspire me to pick up embroidery one day. . .

Coffee, bunny and Easter eggs

Can anyone have too many bunnies, really? OK, maybe, but I am not there yet! I changed my cocoa station from last winter to a spring coffee ...
