I love the color and design combination. Perfect for an 8 year old. That dress will be worn until she out grows it.

I still remember the first dress I made. Look how straight her polka dots run across the bottom. Expertly done.

That's gorgeous Tonya, my 8 year old grand-daughter Ophelie is interested in sewing too. I hope to get her to make a dress for herself for the summer. Love Chris

So glad that we have been able to carry on the tradition thru our local 4-H club. My daughters and son all were involved and now our oldest 2 grands.

She picked the fabrics before she had the pattern.....then we had to find a pattern that she could use both pieces in!!!
