In my last post I talked about sewing up Crafterhours free Racerback dress pattern. I loved the dress so much I quickly made one for my daughter. I pulled out some purple striped fabric that I knew she would like and whipped one right out! It is only 3 pieces and comes together quickly. I did use my serger, but like they say in the directions, I think a regular sewing machine would work fine too.
This is a great pattern and makes a fun summer play dress and I will probably be making at least one more for the summer.
I love how professional the back looks and it is easy to accomplish! I did change a few things and they are as follows.
I also lengthened the dress by about 1.5" lower that the pattern. I like dresses and skirts a bit longer for my active girl and it was good but, I think I'll add another 1" next time. I hemmed the dress with a rolled hem so I wouldn't shorten it any more, and because it is just easier with knits. I especially feel this way when making a more casual dress like this one. I recommend trying this dress, it is easy to make and the pattern goes from 12 months to size 8 so nice wide range! :)
