Simplicity 2460, Springtime dreaming

Filed under: Sewing for Kids (not quilts),The dog, Petunia,The sweet baby — perrymoffitt @ 10:10 pm

Things here in Philly are cold. Cold enough to have me wistfully reading seed catalogs for the spring, contemplating Florida real estate, and sewing spring dresses.


So far only 2 little spring dresses for the queen.


I made the size 3t, it seems right on the mark, my girl is tall and skinny and it works great. I was able to use 2 half yards of complementary fabrics, not including the sash, for the red dress. Huge win, I have lots of half yards in the stash!


The pattern is pretty good, I might make a fully lined bodice next time, but otherwise, pretty darn good.


And now that I see this picture, maybe a shorter ruffle sleeve…


I did a button and ribbon loop instead of the hook and eye. It still doesn’t sit exactly right, but I like it…


11 degrees outside right now, plenty of time to sew a few more dresses for spring.


  1. I hope they are giving yhou some dough for the ad… I clicked on it… Great dresses
