You might remember a couple of weeks ago I made two matching pinny style dresses – one for Alice and one for the daughter of a friend.
Here’s how they were just after I finished them.
I’m told the Queensland based recipient of one of them has started calling it her Sunshine Dress and so the name stuck.
Here’s Alice in hers, taken yesterday morning in front of my zucchini patch.
Blondes in yellow! Such a great combination. I love it! The dress is reversible but this is the side she chose to wear on our outings yesterday.
Once again, it’s the same pattern I’ve used about half a dozen times for Alice – the Lizzy Pinny. Always a winner. I’ve been making them for about 18 months now so for fun, here’s Alice in the first one I made for her in September 2010, back when I was a total newbie.
Such a cutie. So little. I’m totally ready to move on to slightly more complex dress patterns, but this one is just such a winner with its simplicity as a sun dress. She gets so much wear out of them and I love choosing which fabrics work for a reversible pattern. I don’t think this will be my last!
