Sadie Shirt- Sadie Dress

A couple weeks ago I participated in the Sadie Shirt sew-along at Craftiness Is Not optional

It was so much fun and only took about twenty minutes or less a night. 

My littlest girl is a total stick.  I have a hard time finding pants to fit her chicken legs and non existent butt.  She basically lives in leggings and tights. I decided I better make her shirt a little longer so she could wear it as a dress instead. I am so happy with the outcome. 

Jess did a fabulous job explaining all the steps and made the whole thing quite simple. 

I think I'm finally over my fear of biased tape.  My husband got me a tape maker thing last year for Christmas and I finally used it.  I'm sure I'll be making several more shirts or dresses. 

Of course I was thrilled to use an old skirt of mine for the fabric, so this project was free. 
I can't wait to do another sew-along if Jess is up to it.

Oh, how cute!
I really love the fabric and the use of black details in this dress.

Another cute dress. I forgot I had a bias tape maker too, and I need some bias tape for a banner I'm making! I just need to find what box it's hiding in.
