Spring Sundresses!

 I have been hunting Ebay for summer sundresses for the dolls.  Before I made a decision I found this girls skirt at the thrift store.  I loved the fabric and the smocking was the perfect width, so I thought I would make some sundresses for cheap!

Girls skirt from thrift store - $2.00.

 I particularly liked that this smocking was narrow.

I loved the pattern on the fabric.

I cut the skirt in 2 at the side seams.
This will make 2 dresses.
At this point I gave the 2 pieces a good pressing with the iron.

 There was a spot of ink on the front of one piece. 
This I will use for a short sundress.

 So, I cut off the green trim to use for straps. 

 One seam down the back.

 Add the straps.

 One long sundress!

 I trimmed the 2nd piece of skirt to 6 inches.
Hemmed and added straps from leftover skirt scraps.
These straps will tie at the neck.

 I had this rose bric-a-brac and liked how it looked
on the top, so I hand stitched it on.

AND HERE THEY ARE!!!

Julie is wearing a bandanna headband made from leftover
fabric, Jess is wearing the short sundress with ribbon-rose trim,
and Emma is wearing the long sundress.

  

 OH! and Jess is wearing these handmade crochet sandals made by Grandma!






Thanks for looking!
