Butterick B4176

Hello friends,
  Boy is this a crazy month or what? Last week I had three birthdays and fathers day to celebrate. Now I am up to my eyeballs in canning apricots and green beans. But I did find time to make a little dress for my birthday girl. I used this pattern Butterick B4176.
All the Butterick patterns were on sale for $1.99. I bought three of them. I was tempted to buy more,but I don't want to overdose on sewing patterns that I'm never going to use.
I like the idea that the children's patterns are "Fast and Easy". I know I messed up on some areas,but  overall it was pretty simple. On a side note if you decide to sew with this pattern beware that it runs big!
I used some leftover fabric that I already had, when I do actually purchase some fabric it will be a-lot spunkier.
 Hopefully I will make a few more of these this summer.
If any of you ever make this same dress let me know and I would love to feature you.
In the meantime toodles and thank you for stopping by.

  1. Connie, that is adorable! I loved it when my girls were small like that. We could make all kinds of dresses for them with matching bloomers.

  2. It is adorable!! I have that pattern, too, but I can't remember ever using it--feeling inspired now!
