My 4yr old is a proud American but I think that’s mostly because she really just likes being different from the rest of us (and she likes singing/shouting all those patriotic songs I don’t know any of the words to). Anyway, she requested a stars and stripes dress to wear for July 4th and I wanted to share with you what I came up with.
I then cut some rectangle shapes for the skirt which I cut longer than the length of the bodice and gathered it before sewing it to the bottom of the bodice.
Finally I put a bit more bias tape along the bottom, mainly to save myself having to hem the thing (I still haven’t come across a fool-proof hemming technique ~ can anyone help me?)
And there it is! I think I’ll have to make a Union Jack one next, just to even things out a bit.
