Spring Dress

Grace and I went to the fabric store today to look for materials to sew a few spring dresses.  We had fun picking out the fabric, and I got some really good deals.  I found one super cute fabric on the clearance table for 99 cents per yard, and I can’t wait to make it into a dress and post pictures!  (Hopefully I’ll get it done next week). 

I bought enough fabric and sewing notions for four dresses and spent $17.53.  That comes to about $4.38 each!  Not too bad for a custom, perfectly fitted Sunday dress.  Until the weather gets consistently warm, she can put on a white sweater and wear them now!

This was Grace’s favorite fabric, so I made this dress first after dinner tonight.  It’s a pink polka dot design with cute frogs across the bottom and gingham accents on the waist and hem.


Several months ago, I ordered some new design tags to sew in my dresses.  They say “Handmade by Joanna J********”. 


Here’s Grace modeling the finished product.  She loves it!
