Warmer weather is finally here (warmer as in there is no more snow on the ground).  Time to make some dresses for summer!

This is a sweet little sundress I’ve wanted to make for a while.

Confession:: I cut out the fabric for this dress over a year ago (good thing I picked the biggest size in the pattern).

It’s the Tea Party Sundress from Oliver + S.  The pin dot fabric is Pimatex Basics Pin Dot in Celery & White.  The adorable vintage looking bunny fabric is Retro Rabbit in Pink by Anna Griffin for Windham.  I’ve been holding onto that one for a while.

Found some retro looking buttons to go with!

And of course, her doll needs one too!

The pattern for the doll version came from Oliver + S book “Little Things to Sew”.  It took almost as long as the full version, but it is cute.  I did a bit more fussy cutting on the placement of the bunnies on the doll version.

Instead of buttons with holes, there’s velcro under the straps and a decorative button on top.

Here’s hopping (I mean hoping) for some warmer days to come!
