“Sunday Best” Child’s Dress Tutorial from Mollie Makes Magazine
I think I’m getting to the point of a craft magazine avalanche here at the “headquarters” for Kaela Elliott (Fabric & Haberdashery) Shop here in Derry. I just love those magazines and I can’t bear to part with them. There is nothing like a cuppa in hand, licking a finger, and flicking through those pages. I have subscriptions to at least six magazines a month, with the Mollie Makes Magazine being the longest subscription I have. Mollie Makes Magazine has to be my favourite; and as usual, this month’s issue didn’t disappoint.
I wouldn’t call myself a dressmaker as such. I love sewing and upcycling furniture; so I would call myself a crafter more than a dressmaker. I get too easily intimidated by dressmaking patterns. But having said all that, I’m not one to be defeated and will give anything a try once.. Then when I a saw the “Sunday Best” tutorial for making a simple child’s sundress in this month’s issue of the Mollie Makes Magazine, I just had to make it. The link to the download is here.
I made the dress using fabrics from my Fabric & Haberdashery shop here in Derry, Northern Ireland. The pattern in the Mollie Makes issue didn’t have a lining as such. I cut two dresses, so to speak, and used one as a full lining. The pattern was so easy to follow. And, whilst I have neither chick nor child of the age that would wear such a dress, I’m already thinking of other ways I could adapt it…Peter Pan collar…anyone?

Cute? don’t you think? I have the dress displayed in my shop and I get asked about dozen times a day, “did you make that?” 🙂
Take care & enjoy the rest of your Easter break,
