Cute little girl’s dress including tutorial

Do you remember your first day at school?

The excitement to finally going to school like your one year older brother? To know you will learn how to read, write, count? To make new friends, say good bye to some of your Kindergarten friends?

It was such a big step for me but I dont remember much. But what I remember is the new dress I got for this special day.

Now little Miss M. will have her first day at school and I choosed the pattern from my Mickey Mouse dress to sew a new dress for her “big day”

If you like this pattern you can find it (model 126) in this magazine:

So many blogs I read so far helped me with sewing tips and tutorials.

This is the reason to do my own tutorial for a girls dress and give back some of the help

Here is my tutorial:

Little dress with Mickey Mouse fabric

Did you read Mickey comics, watched Mickey on TV as a child? Went more than once to Disney Land?

Yes? Me too hehe

When I saw this fabric I had to have it.

I didnt knew at first what to do with this fabric. Then I found this pattern in a sewing magazine and used this cute fabric

the shoulders arent sewed they are closed with a knot

unfortunality I couldnt found the same red fabric as in my Mickey fabric for the pockets. Instead I used blue fabric which came out quite well πŸ™‚

Skirts, skirts, skirts for a little girl

A co-worker has a cute little 6 year old daughter who ❀ ❀ ❀ skirts.

Good luck for her I have a lot of fabric for children πŸ˜€

So I startet to sew skirts for her. It doesnt need this much time like it does with my stuff. And its the first time I have sewn something for a child.

Its very funny but you can see which skirt I made first. The seam for the pockets is way to far from the edge

Skirt 1

the 2nd skirt. I added a white velvet ribbon

Skirt 2a

This skirt needed more time to sew than all skirts I did so far. I wanted the pockets perfect with the fabric pattern and I did it πŸ™‚

Skirt 2b

The nextΒ  one πŸ™‚

Skirt 3a

and skirt number 4. This skirt is the best I did so far

I just “designed” the next skirt on paper. Now I have to sew it.Maybe this weekend I will have the time to do it.
