I made my daughter this sun dress with some terrific lemon print quilter's cotton I found a Joann's.  I didn't know what pattern I wanted, I just knew I L.O.V.E.D. that fabric!  I settled on Simplicity 2683 in view C with some matching yellow fabric for the straps and hem and mossy green rick rack.  The bodice is lined with plain white muslin. The pattern was a breeze to put together but I had a hard time getting her to stand still for the picture, she just wanted to spin!

It was my own little Mother's Day gift to myself!  Grin

I'm not happy, I'm cheerful. There's a difference.

So nice and cheerful. I always stop at this fabric at Joann's. We love yellow at our house and lemons too. They both just put you in a good mood! Now  you little one  has a good mood dress!

That is so cute and it makes me wish I would've bought the fabric when I was last in Jo-Ann's! 

Great job. Smiley
