Fourth of July Dress




Every year, I make Lily a new Fourth of July dress and buy the boys matching shirts.
This year, she is lucky enough to have two to choose from.



There is something about the Fourth that is just delightful and festive.
I think it is one of my favorite days of the year! 

The dress is made from McCalls Easy pattern #M5370.
Is is REALLY easy to make:).
You only need VERY basic sewing skills.

I changed things up just a bit and added rick rack stripes to both dresses.
The top was a little loose, so we added a fun button closure to the back.



She looks so patriotic and ready for a day of hot dogs and fire crackers.


Have a wonderful Fourth of July!

Your daughter has your legs and feet! It makes me think back when we were kids. Can't wait to meet her again.

You so must LOVE blue and white checks. Isn't the one dress the same fabric as the skirt you just made for yourself?
How cute.
I love it!
