I spent part of my spring break sewing up 4 dresses for my sweetheart. Three were from the super cute book, Girl's World, by Jennifer Paganelli. The pictures in this book make you want a little girl in your life to sew for. I just want to freeze time with my daughter wearing these sweet dresses with a smile on her face.
The dress shown here is "Josie Dress." It is a sundress with a gathered bodice and sash that ties as a bow in the back. The possibilities for this dress are endless either as a casual dress or a dress-up occasion. Since I had not ever sewn with this book before, I tend to size up a dress so that I am not heartbroken with a too small dress. I made a size 8-10 (Large) for my 8 year old. It is a little too big, but normally I would just hang in her closet until next year. She can't seem to take it off, so I turn my head when a strap falls off her shoulder.

When I get her out of this dress, I will photograph the other dresses I made and share.
