What I’m working on tonight

Filed under: sewing — Tags: , , — Lady M Quilts @ 11:38 pm

This is hopefully going to be a reversible A-line, slightly swing-y dress for my 3 yo.  I’ve drafted a pattern tonight, but it’s too late to start cutting. 

All my girls (I have 3) prefer dresses and skirts to pants, and since we prefer (okay, make that require) their skirts cover their knees, well…that’s one of the reasons I started sewing more than curtains and pillows and quilts.

Check back in a day or two to see how it turns out!



  1. You can do so much with a jumper like this. I have made lots of jumpers for my granddaughters (now ages 4 and 3) using Simplicity 5317. Embelished with machine embroidery, applique, rick rack trim, etc.

  2. I’m dying to make my girls (1 & 2 yo) dresses like this. Is there any chance you’d post a tutorial or maybe explain a little how to make a pattern? The dress is so very cute.

  3. Drafting is truly emancipation from ugly patterns. Some nice tops or solid blouses under these would look lovely!
