This week I have been working on summer dresses for two adorable little girls aged 6 and turning 9 next month. The older girl loves purple and butterflies so when I found purple butterfly chiffon in my local fabric shop I just had to make something for her with it! I also bought some yellow chiffon for her younger sister and decided to make them each a cute summer dress. I shirred the bodices, over locked the seams, cover stitched the straps and hemmed the chiffon with a perfect tiny pin hem (pin hem tutorial: http://www.katywarland.com/tutorials-pinhem#!tutorials-pinhem/cbry )

How cute are those...and the chiffon will flow nicely  Grin  I enjoyed your blog and thought the wedding dress you did was very lovely!

You make hemming chiffon seem simple. The dresses are adorable.
