Sarah's First Dress by Aunty

For some weird unknown reason I was a little nervous about making kids clothes. I was a bit intimidated by them. Since I have a 3 year old niece, I figure she could be my kids clothes model and I'd practice on her. Lol Trust me, she doesn't mind because she's a little Miss Fashionista that loves to wear dresses.

While I was in Sewing Class (Sassy Sewer), I saw and purchased a pattern for girls dresses. It was a Kwik Sew Pattern, K3767. After purchasing I went straight to my brother's house to measure my niece. She's so adorable and smart because she knew exactly what I was doing and why I was doing it. She said, "Aunty Yetunde's going to make me a dress." Lol

After about a week the dress was finally finished and I took it to her so she can try it on. I hid the dress and asked her, "Guess what I have for you." And her response was, "A Dress!!!" As soon as she saw the dress, she start screaming and laughing with excitement. I put the dress on her, then the twirling and dancing began. She said, "Aunty Yetunde, it's so pretty and it has Polka Dots and Flowers." I paused for a minute thinking, "what does a 3 year old girl know about Polka Dots." She didn't want to take it off. I had to trick her.

The dress was pretty easy to make, but I had I do a lot of gathering. I always get nervous while doing gathering because I'm always afraid the thread will break and I'd have to start over. Smh.
Before making this dress I also did not know how to make buttonholes. So thanks to some YouTube videos and blogs, I was able to learn, practice, and make buttonholes. :)
