Miss J has a birthday coming up and I wanted to make her a summer dress. I picked this fabric up ages ago, and finally set to it the other day.
It turned out ok ( if we don't talk about the zipper ) and works well with her little cardi.
After working out the kinks, I made another out of a Kaffe Fassett print. I think it's giant Petunias or Hibiscus?
This print is so fun and suits Miss J's personality perfectly. The knit hat came first, then I found a fabric to match
One cardi, and two sun dresses. Essentials for every girls' wardrobe.
dress pattern is Simplicity 1701
hat pattern is a freebie by Just Jussi
Cardigan -- can't remember........
Have a great week end : )
That is very cute! I love both fabrics.
Adorable! I can not wait for grandbabies to sew for. That is when I started sewing when I made little dresses and vests for my kids...love the fabrics!
Really beautiful! Can't believe you managed to find fabric to match the hat, how perfect!
Oh these are just adorable! I sewed for my daughter when she was a baby... looking forward to grandma sewing some day too.
awww they are both so cute! The Kaffe print is perfect!
Awesome, and it seems like that is a very versatile cardigan too.
I'd wear it! But I know it will be cuter on a little tot. Too cute!
wish I had a grandaughter to make a sundress. These are adorable! Did you knit the cute cardi?
darling mix and match outfits!!!
Oh so lovely! Sometimes I wish I had girls so I could sew for them... but then I might as well wait for my sisters to get me some nieces ("only" nephews so far :o)) Hihi!
I think that's the best thing about being an aunt too!
The dresses and cardi are so cute!
So Darling! Ready for Spring. :)
What adorable dresses Carla! You must try to get her modelling the outfit for us!
Oh, wow, Carla. Love them so. What a lucky little girl. You are such a wonderful grandma. I can't wait to do "little makes!"
gorgeous. I love the cardi, it really completes those adorable little dresses.

Sweet . . . of course I especially like the Kaffe dress. Matches perfectly with the cute hat.
Just the sweetest! Don't you wish us grown-up girls could look cute in something like that!
Do you need another granddaughter? What a fashionable grandma you are.
So sweet! Linda
Aren't you s lovely grandma!
Too, too adorable!! How lovely does that cardi look with those two cute dresses. I must admit I love the Kaffe Fasset print. I can't wait to be a grandma...but I don't see it in my crystal ball anytime soon!!!
LOVE! Especially the second, because I have a thing for orange. =) I do not like zippers in clothing, so I select patterns that don't use them...bad, maybe, easier, definitely! =) I think you could almost do a jumper like that with a type of slip button at the top back. That's what I'd do...just to avoid the zipper. Beautiful job, Grandma!
Both outfits are darling, good choices of fabrics and make me wish I had a tiny grand daughter again. One of mine is graduating from UVic this month, Bachelor of Nursing!
Beautiful dresses, love the fabrics and the cardi is very similar to the short sleeved one I've just finished, or the border appears to be similar. As for the hat, how clever to get a matching outfit, x
so cute! I miss making little sundresses! My little sundress girl is going to be 25 this summer so it has been too long!
Adorable Carla, Little Miss J is going to look, Cute As A Button.......
Hi Carla...I tried adjusting my settings...see if you can send an email now...my address is
firstname.lastname@example.org in case it didn't go there in the link
Oh you make me wish I had a little girl to dress up. Somehow boys just aren't the same. Miss J will simply adore her summer wardrobe. Philippa xx
Wow, she is one spoilt little granddaughter! Everything looks great.
Miss J is a very lucky girly :-)
Those little dresses are so cute! What a wonderful grandmother you are.
Beyond adorable! The dresses turned out so cute! I hope you let us see her model them along with her sweater and hat!
Love your fabric choices, Carla. You are having so much fun, for sure!
They are both gorgeous! I especially love how bright and fun the second one is.
So perfect! What a lucky granddaughter!!
