Another A-line Dress!

Last week during a brief spell of health between two colds, I sewed up this dress for Amaani. The next chance I got, I dragged both kiddos to the park to photograph it so I could put it up on the Strawbazies blog. 

Nothing special about this dress--- except it has sleeves! My very first! The puff sleeves were a request by Kartik. I used this tutorial to alter the pattern, and it worked pretty well. 

The pattern is the same as the reversible dress, (simplicity 1890 again). I love how different it looks with just a few changes. The one isn't lined, and uses bias tape as a facing for the neckline.

 It came together so quick-- I'm definitely going to make more in the future. -- Even Amaani likes it!  I just had to put this photo up to show off her new, cute little teeth.


  1. I love, love, love this dress!! Will you teach me to sew, L's been asking for months for me to make her a strawberry shortcake dress. :)

  2. So cute and a great idea for making slight changes to patterns you've already used. I love doing that myself.

  3. rashelk! I know! Since I trace out my patterns, it's kind of like getting a dress for free! Or at least half off!
