    How delightful! I just love that you're doing this--it's inspiring me to do the same when I take a break from making blocks. The photo is fun to look at with all the colorful dresses hanging in the breeze.

    Thank you everyone for your lovely comments on the dresses.

    As to the patterns I used Simplicity 2377 for the blue/red, the pink one next to it and the yellow one but this time I did not gather the skirt I did a box pleat in the front for variation from the last lot that I made.


    The right end all over pink and the blue one next to it is a Simplicity 4927 and the lilac and the red stripe next to it are a mixture of the two put together by me. I used the top and sleeve of the first pattern and drafted it onto the A line dress. It makes a peasant style.

    Hope this helps with your query.

    Yes Tartan they do take pictures of the girls wearing them. They are sent back to the co-ordinator who publishes them in a newsletter as well as putting them on their website.

    As well as making the dresses I also make bags which you can see what they are being used for on the website below and also bibs for 1-2 years.
