This is a little dress I made in between projects. I needed an easy sew to cleanse my palette!

I won this fabric in a Michael Miller giveaway at Coffee & Thread. I love Olga’s blog, and her patterns are to die for. (I plan to make the Antalya dress soon.)

Sof was so cute while I took pictures. She was running around looking at all the first blooms of spring, comparing the colors to her dress.

I’m nostalgic as I write this post. I’ve made New Look 6115 for my niece before. Look how tiny she was in this gray and yellow version!

I know I should be talking about the dress, but all I can think of is how I said I was going to make this pattern dozens of times for Sofia. But now she’s on the last size. And my daughter is growing out of most of my kids patterns in her size range. I guess that’s why I’ve changed gears and started focusing on women’s wear this year… So I’ll be prepared to sew their wedding dresses next time I blink. Sniff.

How fast we grow up, and forget the joy of skipping around barefooted in the mud. Okay, now I’m just getting dramatic. I’ll stop.

I didn’t get any construction pics, so you’ll have to take my word that I made this dress beautifully. I made French seams throughout, and hand basted the zipper before sewing it. My zippers are rarely perfect, but this one is a lot closer. I lose points for not matching the center back, but who’s counting? The only changes I made to the pattern was to add a button loop closure above the zipper, and add a 1.5″ to the hem allowance. That way I can let it out when she grows. Which she will. Sniff, again.
New Look 6115- Easter dress!
I think New Look 6115 is a perfect Easter dress. I wish I could get my 11 year old in dresses and make matching cousin-wear!

I have a little bit of the purple floral and about a half yard of the stripes. A matching bow has been requested, and I may sneak some time for a pair of paper bag shorts to wear under. I better hurry- The dress fits perfectly which means we’ll be lucky if she can still wear it mid summer!

Hello. I'm Amy and I'm addicted to sewing. I borderline-hoard fabric, buttons, & patterns. Sometimes I wish I could pile my fabric up on the floor and just roll in it!

    I would never have thought to put the floral fabric with the stripe, Amy, but they look gorgeous together. Love the idea of paper bag shorts to go with the dress.

    Yes she has grown!! The flower print is beautiful, and perfect for the spring. I would have never thought of mixing with stripes like that, but they work well together! You know what, I was just thinking about this pattern…I bought it years ago, thinking what a lovely dress I could make with it…and I have never actually used it!! I think I can still make the last size 4T for Momo with added length. I really need to get on with it!

    She is adorable! Elena likes her a lot. That missing tooth is so cute and the bun is as big as her head! The dress is beautiful. I love the colors and the curve of the bodice seam. I was just thinking about Easter dresses today. I wish we could rely on decent weather, but it could be snowing or it might be 60 here. One never knows. (Also, pretty funny typo at the top- the fabric designer’s name. Check it out. Lol.)
