Starlite Dress


A while back my mother gave me some of my old books for the girls to read, and some of the ones they have become attached to are about Rainbow Brite.  So of course I told them I'd make a Rainbow Brite dress!  I bought this Riley Blake unicorn fabric instead of making a costume.  I thought this would appease them since the unicorn looked liked Rainbow Brite's horse, Startlite.  


The dress was made using a newly released pattern that I love!  The Sunny Dress & Top by SewVery.   I was fortunate to test the 3T version.  The pattern is a fitted A-line dress that ties in the back (so adorable!).  There's an option of putting a ruffle across the top or leaving it plain - both cute options.  The pattern fits the girls really well, which isn't always the case with every pattern. 


You can also use the pattern to make a top, which I'll post more about later next week (sneak peak above).  Right now the pattern is 20% off this weekend.  If you're looking for an adorable summer dress or top to sew for your girl, check it out!
