Spring Dresses for Ella



    Simplicity 2684
I fixed the technical problem that i had with Ella's dress.  It is very cute.  I am getting the hang of little girl dresses and just love sewing for her.  Finally the how to make cute is emerging.  I added the butterflies and so seta paints to tart them up.






Here is the McCall's M5684.  It is not like the pattern the top is very narrow so next time i will make it wider.  I really love this dress.  iI made me want to make more.


I decided to make a Twirl skirt.  it really is a child's version of a broomstick skirt.  This was the first effort and I did not like it.  it does not fit my design idea.  So




a forth ruffle was added and the top layer was shortened.







  From what was on line most little girls have great fun with this skirt.
