Here's the tutorial for the Bayern Sundress that was originally posted over at Melly Sews...
I'm so excited to be here today and show you the little sundress I made for my girl.
While I dabble in many homemade projects from cooking to crafting, my greatest passion lies in sewing for my children Anja (1 1/2 years) & Tobias (4 years). I specifically love classic, vintage stylings, which led me to decide to share this particular dress with you. It is inspired by a dress I bought in Germany years ago, for a friend who was expecting her first baby.
I am so drawn to the classic lines, simplistic details, and versatility
(throw a long sleeve shirt underneath, and this could be worn in winter!).
You will need:
Fabric (you may opt to use a contrasting lining as I did)
1" wide elastic - cut two pieces, 6cm/2.5in long
This is about a size 2 years, and fits my 25 1/2 pound (11.5 kg) daughter.
I tried my best to accurately include imperial measurements for my neighbours to the south, but please forgive me if there are any discrepancies.
Please excuse (and don't be confused by) my change in fabric!
**When you stitch to the lining, make sure to leave the bottom of the bodice & the back yoke open, so you can turn it right side out later**
Whew! All done. If there is any clarification needed, feel free to contact me. Head over to Elegance & Elephants for a couple variations of this dress, with tutorials.
And don't forget to check out the latest giveaway while you're there, too!
Thanks again for having me here at Melly Sews!
