A few weeks ago Joann's was having a 99 cent pattern sale so I decided I would try my hand at dressmaking. I bought eight toddler patterns. They were a combination of dresses and tank/short sets. Mostly summer outfits, but with a shirt underneath they could work for winter and spring.
I decided on a Valentine's Day dress when I found the holiday fabric on sale for $2.44 a yard at Wal-Mart. I purchased two yards, a yard each of a paisley and polka dot. After two nights of cutting, ironing, sewing a seam ripping I was finished.
This was a McCall's pattern M6270. I loved how it turned out, Claire's pink boots from Grandpa matched perfectly.
