Pop Garden Sundress with Pocket




OK, so I'm addicted to making these sundresses for Miss Mia. Living here in Puerto Rico is so hot, and dresses are the only thing she wants to wear. Again, I basically followed the tutorial on lilblueboo's blog, but changed a few things-straps, added a pocket, and some of the measurements. I used Heather Bailey's Pop Garden fabric-LOVE it! I love just about everything by Heather Bailey. Don't you? Another great thing about this fabric is that it has green in it? Remember in my last post I said I wanted to make things that are green until March 17th? Mission accomplished! I'm usually not a huge fan of ankle length dresses, but made this one that length so it will fit her the whole year. She'll be 4 this summer and my goal is to make her size 4T wardrobe. She's still fitting in a 3T, so most of the stuff I'm making her now is a little big so she'll grow into it :) I was debating whether or not I should add the large front pocket, but really felt like it needed something, and think the pocket gives it just the right touch. Plus, I don't want all her sundresses looking identical. I made her sunflower hair clip awhile back and think it goes perfectly with this dress! I have some new ideas for green things, so check back soon :)

I agree with Sue - it's one of my favorites! I love yellow - so sunny and cheerful. It looks beautiful on Mia, and I think the pocket is perfect!
