Who doesn't love a field of sunflowers? And girls in white linen dresses.
I found this embroidered polka dot linen when I was in Spain last year and knew it would be perfect for a simple dress for Audrey. She loves purple. And she loves wearing this simple a-line chemise. (My Ruffled Chemise pattern without any ruffle....)
I had a tiny bit leftover to make a little skirt for Scarlett, with the addition of another longer layer underneath. Scarlett's double bow collar blouse is a pattern I've been toying with since the Madeline dresses I sewed last year. I would love to finish it soon--I adore the look! But I've learned not to make promises....
Tess's chiffon polka dot dress was purchased by her grandmother years ago for Audrey to wear.
I sewed and photographed these last September before the sunflowers disappeared. It seemed too late to share then so I've been hanging on to them and nearly forgot about them. Thought I'd share them now before it's too late again. Funny how August also brings thoughts of Fall.
I haven't been sewing dressier things for the girls this summer but I may need to head that direction again. Always something else to sew.... That what I love about it.
Hope you are enjoying the last blast of summer.
