Sundress Sewing

The weather has been just beautiful! Summer is here and early for New Hampshire, but I'm not complaining. And what is summer without a new sundress? So finding inspiration here and here, this simple sundress for Bekah was born. I had never sewn with elastic thread, and the first attempt was pretty much a failure. But I was determined to get this little dress made. After a little playing around and winding the bobbin tighter I got the look I was going for.
Bekah didn't want to pose for the camera, but I think these shots are cute. She loves to twirl in her new dress. I have plans to make a couple more for her and Sarah wants on too.


  1. The dress is beautiful as well as your daughter! What a talent!! I'm hoping to try my hand at sewing this year for the first time. I have 3 daughters as well and I really want them to learn this skill. Thanks for sharing!

  2. What a lovely sun dress, I really need to jump in and sew something:)

  3. Beautiful dress! I'm gathering courage to try smocking. Thanks for the inspiration.

  4. Bekah looks so pretty in her new dress. Great dress. I've not sewn with elastic. It sounds fiddely. I have done some smocking, but before I had my girls. I must look out a pattern.


Thanks for stopping by for a visit! I look forward to your thoughts.
