May Challenge

Being as crazy as I am, I took a break from sewing clothes for a local fair to make this summer dress for Zoe. My girls have told me that all they want to wear this summer are dresses and that makes it pretty easy for me!

I did make a couple of changes to the Summer Chevrons Shirt.
One- I made it a dress (we're keeping the girls wants in there).
Two- I changed up the arms a bit. I cut it at a slant so it wasn't so boxy, left off the flutter sleeves and I used facings to finish the arms.
The top fabric is a neon yellow (although it looks green) chambray I got from Nutta. It's lovely and I had JUST enough for the top of this left.
The Flamingo Knit I got from Nuttalls here in Utah.
SOOOO perfect for summer!

 Now, I have to admit I have been horrid at adding labels to the clothing I make my kids, but that is changing! 

You can see how much this chick-a-dee loves her new dress!!
