everyday dresses

Oh, how I love these faux-smocked dresses. They seem to be everywhere these days… and that’s because they’re light, they’re comfortable, and they make you feel so very pretty.

Dresses and tops are made with one simple measurement. Take a tape measure and measure under your arms and over the fullest part of your chest. Pretend you’re wrapping a towel around yourself. If you’ve got a squirrel-y kid, like me, use a string and then lay that string down next to a ruler. Now, we’re talkin’ about elastic here… no need to be unbelievably precise. Don’t ruin your day by trying to wrangle your child into submission. Read your number as best you can and call it good.

Kiddo dresses easily double as tops the next year. These tops can be all-season wear simply by adding a long sleeve tee underneath. The inside seam is hidden… so no rough edges and no fraying in the washing machine. Edges, depending on the fabric, are rolled with a zig-zag stitch or flat-hemmed.

Along with your measurement, you’ll email me [katiemulder AT gmail DOT com] your color preferences, if any. If you’d like a pocket or contrasting straps, that’s a good time to tell me as well.
