My friend Tara is such a talented photographer and I was thrilled when she mentioned to me that she wanted to start sewing with her sweet daughter Taylor. Taylor is 9 and that's a great age to begin sewing. I sent her my patterns and they decided to start with my Sunny Scallop Dress. I'm so glad they did because they made a beautiful dress. Look!
Taylor looks so lovely and ladylike and this is the perfect dress for our upcoming Arizona summer (seriously folks, unless you've experienced it, you have no idea how scorching it is!). I love these pictures.
I really try to make my patterns in a way that looks pretty but is easy for beginners. Looking at these sweet pictures makes me feel like I've achieved that. Thanks Tara and Taylor!
On another note (but kind of the same...) I've created a pdf file that explains how to lengthen your Sunny Scallop Dress pattern if you'd like it longer. The pattern goes up to size 10 and is pretty long but I know some girls are lankier so this will help if you have the pattern and wanted to adjust it. Just click here to download it and then you can print it out and it will fit nicely with your pattern if you fold it in half. Let me know if you have any questions!
I hope you're having a great summer so far!! Keep on sewing!!
