4th of July Dress

Since July 4th falls on a Sunday this year, I decided to sew a dress for my little girl to wear to church and to the parade the next day. I went back to my favorite pattern, Simplicity #5695. I love this pattern because it is simple to sew, it has sleeves, and doesn't require buttons or a zipper.

I got the fabric at Joanns on sale for $1.99/yard. If you want to make this dress, you would need 1/2 yard blue, 1/2 yard red, and only 1/4 to 1/3 yard white. You would also need a package of small elastic.
And how about a matching hairstyle to go with it?

It's just puffy braids with red, white and blue elastics. Easy, fast, and very patriotic!


  1. I LOVE it!!! super cute! I totally picked up that pattern (also for $.99) awhile ago thanks to your fabulous recommendation... but I haven't used it yet and totally wish I had thought of something like this! I guess there is still pioneer day for the LDS right? We'll see. LOVE it!!

  2. Way to go. She looks so cute in it!

  3. Very cute! Your daughter is adorable!
