This is my craft book challenge project for May. Finished in June. And LATE June at that.
Yes, I’m behind. And even though I’m probably the only person holding myself accountable, I still feel guilty. And to make matters worse, I don’t even own this craft book. Just had it on loan from the library (that counts, right???)
Anyway, this is the Mendocino dress from Weekend Sewing by Heather Ross. Such a fast, easy and FUN project. And to make it even faster and easier (and funner) I used a vintage pillowcase to bypass the tasks of hemming and side-seaming. Every little bit helps, right? It was perfectly sized for Esme’s 3yo little self and will likely be wearable well into her 4yo + 5yo days.
Let’s just say, getting a picture of her sitting still was the hardest part of this project.
The little capris, Esme’s summer wardrobe staple, are from this sweet etsy shop.
I heart this little dress so, so much. And luckily, my twirly, skippy, moving target of a daughter does too.
