Let me just state up front I don’t sew clothes; haven’t for a long time. BUT I have a new granddaughter, our first, and that has changed my outlook on many things. So when I saw SewBaby’s Reversible Sundress & Bloomer Pattern I just had to give it a shot. I chose Spring Celebration (#4514)
from our Matsuri Lawn collection. I’d never used Lawn fabrics before and I was very pleased with the result. It’s lightweight making it perfect for a summer outfit. The pattern sizes range from 6 mo to 4T (I decided to make the 18 mo size so she can wear it next year) and gives two options for fastening the shoulder straps, buttons or snaps. I chose snaps so the dress would truly be reversible.
My quick success with this project has left me ready to try my hand at more. Our Matsuri Collection is 40% off this week (through 9/11/2012) so it is the perfect time to give it a try.
And, in true Grandma style, I have to sneak a picture in. Won't she look adorable in this outfit next summer?
