Hayden Dress

I Love making dresses for my sweet girl!! Now more than ever because she helps me pick out the fabric and LOVES wearing dressing that I make her!! When I saw The Hayden Dress from SewSweet Patterns on Etsy, it had Klaira written all over it!! This is the 2nd pattern I have sewn from SewSweet and I love the styles and the patterns are easy to follow. It's fits Klaira really nice and slips on easy. There were two adjustments I made: I added about an inch and a half to the length of the main bodice, (standard adjustment when making dresses for Klaira and myself) and I choose to put the botton holes on the strap and bottons on the dress. I did that because I thought the botton popped better off the blue. The fabric choice is from one of my favorite collections, Tutti Fruit from Joann's!! The collection has SO many bright colors, it's seersucker, and it doesn't really wrinkle. This pattern will get LOTS of use over the next few years!!!
