|Ayla Rose by Bonnie Blue Designs|
There was an abundance of summer florals in my stash, so I planned to whip up a few simple summer dresses for my daughter. This is one of them.......
Ayla Rose by Bonnie Blue Designs is a very quick and easy pattern to construct. Janis Shelton gives great directions for a narrow hem. The back placket directions were different from ones I had constructed before, but following the directions and pictures will keep you on track.
The dress is very cute on a young girl. I used a size 8 and my 9 year old daughter has plenty of growing room. This pattern would be appropriate in a fancy fabric. The layered skirts have a wonderful drape.
White floral cotton seersucker from Fabric Finders. Pink piping from Children's Corner. Flower done using Kari Mecca's Whimsy Sticks and satin ribbon.
