4462  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / My Babygirl's Rockabilly-esque Elvis Sun Dress-(Updated with Model Shots!) on: May 29, 2010 09:15:47 PM

It's been ages since I've posted something new on craftster...so very happy to share my babygirl's newest dress made from my highly coveted blue Elvis fabric!

The pattern is an easy McCall's sundress #M5613 ...sent to me by the dear Elvissatx! She sent me some patterns that her niece has outgrown & I found the time to put this one to use while my inlaws kept my kiddos busy.  Smiley

The one thing I did differently from the pattern was to switch the buttonholes to the top panel rather than having them on the straps...so I can just adjust the position of the button on the straps as my girl grows to get more wear out of the dress.
I'm happy  to say that I conquered the button hole setting on my machine for the first time...with a little encouragement, because I was ready to set the whole thing aside & stitch them during daylight hours by hand. Can you tell I used to hate doing buttonholes so much?  Embarrassed
The pain of learning the buttonhole setting was so worth it when I put it on babygirl this morning. She twirled and squealed about the big big pockets! This pattern is a winner for a 3 year old!

I plan on making some black and white polka dot bloomer shorts to go under it.
Comments/questions are appreciated & I'll do my best to answer them.

She is such a cutie!!!! Great work on the recons! They look like brand spankin new outfits! If they came in my size...I'd even wear them!

I love them both! So cute!

About that loopy thread problem... it's happened to me when I've put the spool on the machine wrong...so the thread kept catching that little notch on the spool. Once I turned it over it worked alright. As others said...could be the tension & check how it's threaded.
