Little Girls Sundress

little girls sundressSummer and pretty cotton fabrics go together like strawberries and cream. Make your little girls summer by creating gorgeous traditional sundresses. We have chosen a dress that has a shirred elastic bodice top – this will teach you a couple of extra skills rather than just creating a simple dress (a little more challenging) and allows for growing room!

The topics we aim to cover are:

  • Learn how to cut accurately
  • How to finish edges
  • Using shirring elastic
  • Attaching straps
  • Different hems

Materials needed:

Ideally you should bring along a cotton/cotton blend fabric.

  • Assuming fabric widths of 115cm
  • Age 2 – 50cm fabric
  • Age 4 – 90cm fabric
  • Age 6 -130cm fabric
  • Age 8 – 140cm fabric
  • 1 x 10m reel if shirring/sewing elastic
  • 1 reel of thread to match or contrast your fabric
