Christmas in July : Day 4
Day 4 of our Christmas in July free pattern series brings us to the Hey June girls Racerback dress. One great thing about this pattern is at least in the smaller sizes if offers a lot of fun with our in-house panels.
I made a 3T for our daughter using one adult panel and our Heathered DBP.
The back of this dress can easily be made using gathers or pleats. I went for a finger pleat mostly because I dint want to get my sewing machine out in the middle of serging. I have a smaller work space so only one machine can be operational at a time.
This is a good dress for everyday wear for those active littles. Kat ran and played in it all day with no frustration or issues. I see a handful more in our future. Especially Since Kat will probably be starting preschool this fall.
The Racerback Dress comes in sizes 12mo- 8, features layers and is a fairly simple project that could be dressed up to add the wow factor if wanted.
This one took me about an hour from print to hem and about the same to get photos, thanks to a stubborn toddler.
I can think of a few young ladies that will likely be getting one of theses for Christmas or birthday maybe with a cardigan ( stop by on the 10th to see that).
And this dress is husband approved because of the panel I used, so a totally win on this project.
What will tomorrow bring? Stop in to find out.
