Simplicity 5695

With Logan's birthday party (which has a Disney Cars theme) coming closer I finally managed a project that I have wanted to do for some time.Myra's own Lightning McQueen dress. Ever since I made Logan his Cars shirt, I have had this little dress in my head.
It is nice to finally see it in fabric. This is a great pattern. Fun and easy. I'll definitely be using it again. The only difficulty I had with it was the neckline elastic. The pattern includes a guide, which I used initially, but when I tried it on Myra it was waaaay too big. Of course, as do all Big 4 children's patterns, it runs unbelievably large. By measurements, I should have sewn a size 2, but this is a size 1/2. Just be sure to flat pattern measure, and you should be fine.
And last, some gratuitous cuteness.
I think she likes her dress. I know I do!

That is such a cute little dress!

You have a great blog. I'd love for you to come and visit my blog. I just made a Vintage Vogue Original 1944 Design, V2858. On the previous page you'll find a dress I made from an original 1974 pattern that I found in an antique store. I call that post The Lady in Lavender. And lots of other things in between. Hope you enjoy.

Very cute dress! I love how you used "boy" fabric and made it girly.
