DIY Miss M’s first maxi dress

Do you remember the first time you wished for a maxi dress? I was a teenager.
Miss M and her family are invited to a wedding. She wished for a long dress with a spaghetti strap. I think because she saw it at her Mom’s.
She chose the fabric for the dress herself. The first time I saw the fabric, I thought, “Yuck.”
I would never have picked this fabric for a seven-year-old girl.
Her dress – her decision!
Here you can see how the dress turned out. Looks really good!

Two months ago, I bought fabric for Miss M. It was supposed to be a dress. Since there was more than enough fabric for a long dress, I also made the pattern with this fabric.
Now I just hope she likes that dress, too.

I sewed both dresses so that she can still wear them next year. There’s more than enough seam in there.
In a few hours she’ll get the dresses and I hope I can get some nice photos so I can show them here 🙂

Et voilà

Miss M was right about the intense colors. She’s blonde and has very light skin. The contrast green/blue looks simply more beautiful….
