I love quick, summer play dresses. You can never have too many of them! Here’s a really easy girl’s frock that takes no time at all!
Sew your fabric together to make a big tube. Make it about 1.5 times your child’s chest measurement.
Find the center of the dress and mark it.
Bring both sides in and pin in place.
Stitch it down the center a couple inches.
For the chest band get a piece of fabric and fold it over to create a thick band. Make sure it will fit over your child’s head and shoulders.
Attach it to the dress and sew together. (I gathered my dress slightly in the back so it would have a little more movement.)
Make a couple straps and attach them where you like.
I topstiched along the front chest band for a nice detail.
I also v’d my straps in the back.
Total time- about 45 minutes. So easy!
Have a beautiful weekend!

Hello Monday! Today I’m going to show you how to make this simple girl’s dress. I’ve been trying to use up fabric I have laying around here so I came up with the Ava Frock.
For the first step, you’re going to cut out the bodice piece. Cut it out in length from the neckline to the waist. Leave it a few inches wider than your child’s torso.
Next, cut the sleeves. We’re going to gather the neckline, so the sleeves act as an exaggerated neckline. The rise up past the neckline of the bodice. Your pieces should look like this.
Next sew the sleeves to the bodice top.
