In Melbourne we had a bit of a heatwave (before the terrible bushfires) and had five days straight of 45 degrees celcius. Luckily I had finished this cute little sundress just in time.

The pattern was the same as that I used for the blue top I made her, but lengthened.
The polka dot craft fabric was in my stash.
The yellow fabric is an old sheet.
There are also matching bloomers underneath and it has plenty of growing room.

This isn't a vintage pattern, it's from the Burda Magazine (I think 7/08) and is really very simple. The yoke (polka dot) is lined and finished with two buttons at the back. The back seam on the yellow fabric stops a few centimetres below the yoke and is left open above that. If this is unclear (?) just PM me and I can put a photo of the back up for you.
Worth persisting with as this style just looks gorgeous
