8. Gather and Grow Dress

Here's one of my dress tutorials on Moda Bake Shop. The thing I like the most about this dress is that it can be worn for a long time by a growing child. The elasticized back and shoulder ties ensure that the dress grows along with your little one.

      I absolutely ADORE sewing for baby girls... So wish I could dress my 13 yr old baby girl still in these fashions !!! But at least she loves to sew along with me- thank you for your time spent in collecting and sharing with us all... I certainly appreciate (and "take in") any moments possible I can spend with her. We've actually created a sewing class for my daughters "groupies" - revamped the playroom into a new Studio and have since started collecting used, older machines for each girl to be able to sew on ! (My husband says it really looks like I'm running a sweat-shop, lol !) Sewing had sort of become a lost art for younger generations... Incredibly happy to see its popularity booming !!!
