I saw this two summer sundress pattern a little while ago and knew straight away that I wanted to make it for Esme. Even better, I already had enough of this sweet cherry fabric sitting in my fabric container (I knew there was a reason I stockpile fabric!) This cute dress is made using a knitted top and a skirt sewn to the bottom. Since I am (by my own confessions) not a knitter I commissioned the knitting over to my Mother-in-law. The skirt part was pretty easy to sew but putting it all together and sewing the ribbon/buttons onto it was a little tricky especially since the knitted part stretches a lot. I'm thinking of replacing the buttons with red snaps down the track.
