Happy 4th of July everyone!
I came across this adorable red, white and blue fabric at Hancock Fabric’s last week, so I grabbed a few yards.
We were going to a party on the 4th, and I wanted to sew a coordinating brother/sister outfit for my little guys.
I am thrilled how her dress turned out! The pattern I used was New Look 6361, view A.
Originally, I had planned on making the romper and shortening the pants to shorts, but since I hadn’t made them before, I wasn’t sure how the adjustments I wanted to make would turn out.
So I went with the dress pattern.
When I do make the romper, I am going to try to take a little of the volume out of the pants.
At the last minute, I decided to add a little piping to the top and bottom of the halter top. I made my own piping, but you can just buy it online as well.
It made such a difference, really made the red fabric pop!
I love this dress pattern!
It came together so quickly and looks adorable. I will definitely be making a few more.
(They were totally the cutest kids at the party!)
