New Look 6793

While I trace and fit my Easter dress, I got to take a little detour for a sweet little girlie dress!
One of my buddies from sewing group is having her first girl, and after 3 boys, she's really excited! I wanted to make the little princess something uber-girlie. The pattern is New Look 6793, which I've used a couple of times for Myra. The bloomers are from a random Butterick pattern.  I've used the fabric before, too, in  my first ever project from Ottobre, the ruffle bum shorts. The dress is cute and goes together quickly. This is the first time I've used the bottom band, and I really like it! I wonder if Myra can still squeeze into the biggest size...
I used the polka dot fabric for the facings. I love the two sided ties! I also added a little ribbon tag in back. Mitch always had a hard time telling the front from the back, so this should make dressing easier. I also tucked a little ribbon tab into the back of the bloomers. I always do with elastic waist pants and shorts. It's so often difficult to tell which side is which.
I hope she likes it!

  2. Cute! I have to do the same thing as far as front and back. I often use bits of FOE since that is so soft. Guys just don't get how to tell front from back (and neither do toddlers/preschoolers).
