Summer Snippets: The Dress

Posted on


Ahhh. Finally something I can make for one of my children, other than pajama bottoms. This is quite possibly the easiest little sunsuit known to man: self-line, so there’s no hemming, and ties instead of buttons. Hello! I made one for my niece almost three years ago [What?! How could that be?], and was thrilled to have an excuse to bust this pattern out again.


The pattern is McCall’s M5079. It also includes instructions for bloomers and a hat. I’m too lazy to sew the elastic into the bloomers, so my model here will be wearing pre-fab shorts; hats are in the works.

I’ve already made two more of these little dresses, so you know I’m not kidding about the easiness factor. Tying them onto a wriggly baby is a whole ‘nother matter, but we must suffer for fashion, no?
