Kimbabwe has made lots of these Sweet Little Dresses from the Leila & Ben pattern and inspired me to try it out, too.  My first one used some brown cotton from my stash, I hand embroidered it with a vintage pattern to liven it up a little bit.  This is my daughter and her trusty sidekick modeling it.





The next dress is made with some Quick Cuts fabric that I got on clearance at Walmart


Lastly, I made a top with some fabric leftover from another dress I had made.  These fabrics are from Hobby Lobby.


I highly recommend this pattern for beginners.  The instructions are easy to follow, it sews up quickly, and you can customize it in so many ways!  I wish it was offered in my size.  Thanks for looking.

The embroidery on that brown dress is darling!  My little one would love that, too Smiley

Thank you for the kind replies.  These dresses are perfect for embroidery, I'm thinking some cute holiday themes are next!  Maybe I'll stitch a cute little bat or pumpkin on there for Halloween, Christmas ornaments...endless possibilities.
