Nice day for a summer dress

Hello friends,
  Today is a toasty hot,melt your face off kind of day here in southern California. My two year old thought it was so hot that she decided to leave her clothes outside on the grass. I can't blame her, she was wearing jeans and a t-shirt. So I thought this was a great time to try out her new Summer dress! Yeah!
After I put this little number on, she was happy as a lark. I love to make summer dresses for her.  I only wish I could make ones for me that wouldn't take forever ...and that would actually fit.
I got this pattern along with two others I bought from Joanns for $1.99 .  The pattern is the one on the right. Butterick B4173.If you follow me then you will recognize these patterns from my other post here.
The fabric was free so you can't beat that right.
Now if only I could find a simple solution for my sprained toe everything would be even more peachy. Maybe if I actually looked where I was going :).
Thanks for coming by you can find me here this weekend.
