Of all the projects I was willing to take on, sewing a swimsuit was definitely not on that list. Call me crazy but the thought of trying to manipulate the fabric as it got pulled and stretched in my sewing machine just didn’t sit well with me. Then it happened. I found the cutest bathing suit ever, made by Eberjey. It was on sale and I had to have it….sold out. So I looked elsewhere and the only place I could find it was on the brand’s website for a price that makes my heart drop. Plus, the smallest size they sell is 2 years and I needed something closer to 18 months. So I decided to give it a try.
I am always on the lookout for sewing patterns for the kids. Now that it’s getting warmer, I have dress patterns in my sights and have been on the hunt! I’ve compiled some of the cutest, cheek-pinch worthy, FREE dress patterns that I’ve come across.
Purchase the pattern or buy the dress already made! (photo 3 via mingo & grace)
Allow me to introduce you to the Blake dress by mingo & grace. How stinking cute is this? As soon as I saw it I thought it would be perfect for Sister to wear for Easter (or a holiday party, special occasion, flower girl dress or just because – who needs a reason?) and I couldn’t resist. I mean, who doesn’t love a little girl in a dress? Ugh, love. You can’t tell in my photo but this dress has pockets too!
