The Sherri Dress

I have been itching to do a little dress making. So, I designed a little pattern for a little girl, I am gonna call this pattern The Sherri Dress. It is a size 4 and is for sale in my Etsy shop, SewGlenda.
The fabric is a beautiful floral fabric with an aqua background and large flowers in gold, lavender, olive and chocolate. The lined bodice is trimmed in chocolate ric-rac and a gorgeous fabric flower in coordinating fabric. The inside waist seam is bound with tiny chocolate polka dot fabric reminiscient of dotted swiss and the hem is bound in same sweet dotted chocolate and finished by hand. The back of this dress has a loop button closure with a custom covered button and a lovely sash that ties in back. All seams are finished on the garment either by French Seams or binding. There are no raw seams on this garment.


  1. Hi Glenda! I just L O V E this dress!!!! Right now I'm baby-sitting little 4 yo Chloe.... wouldn't she just love a dress like this:-) I bought (over the internet-my first purchase!) a reversible skirt pattern, size 2 - 6, can't wait to get some time and space (sewing room is quite a jumbled mess at present:-) to have a go at making a couple. B.B. is only size 2 and Chloe would be size 4 or 6. Gee, I wonder if I would have any fabric suitable??? LOL

    Have a lovely day!

    Happy Sewing!

  2. HA! Thank you, I love the dress, too! And, like me, I bet you have a bunch of fabric to choose from in your stash. The fabric for the little dress came from my stash! Get sewing for those little girls! It will be so much fun!

  3. Glenda, You have been busy. I love the little dress. Beautiful work.
    The wallhanging and baby quilt are awesome, too.
    I am inspired.

  4. Thanks for the class yesterday. I LOVE the dress and it takes so little time to make. It was a FUN morning.
