Comfy Summer Dress

It is sunny and pretty around here in Eastern Washington.  To kick start the summer sewing, I made a little dress for Asha.    
The fabric came from Fabric Fairy, and I drafted the pattern with a lot of help from Alison.   

I couldn't tell which Asha was more excited about, the dress or the label.  I ordered a bunch from here.

I like the labels. You should really start a boutique. How fun would that be?

きゃー!このラベル素敵!とうとうまりえちゃんブランドができちゃったね。

ワンピースもかわいい!水玉とボーダーが絶妙にマッチしててさすがまりえちゃん。

very cute labels. I love the dress, I can see why Asha is excited!

Lucky Asha! It looks great and I like how you did an inverted pleat instead of gathers. We drafted so many patterns I can't remember what we originally planned for it.

I don't know if I'll get through mine - it's clean out and packing time

Great job on coordinating the fabrics too. I like it even more than the dress from crewcuts

I think I'll have to copy you on the labels- thanks for the link

I love the fabric - and LABELS! I've been wanting some of those too - thanks for the web site! What a fun touch to top off whatever you're working on.

Hi, I'm Al's sister and I love the dress you made for your daughter! It is so cute, I'm begging Al to help me make some for my girls!

かわいい〜!しかも、はやいっ!もう、ドレスが・・・できてる!ねえ、まりえちゃんクレージーキルトとか、クレージースクエアキルトって言われてるの作った事がある?今日キルトの生地屋さんに行ったら、エイミーバットラーの生地で、ほとんどがデイジーチェインのグリーン系のコレクションの5種類の生地でできてて、すっごくかわいいのを見て作りたくなりました。次が女の子だとわかったので、フィオナと赤ちゃんのを色の系色だけを変えて作りたいと思って。もうちょっとグーグルしてみま〜す。
