Independence Day Dresses July 4, 2015 – Posted in: 4th of july, dress, farm, girls clothes, peasant dresses, sewing

I felt like making dresses for the girls again this year. Don’t be too impressed, though. These were super easy!

I just whipped up some peasant dresses, but shortened the length and sleeves a bit. For the youngest daughter, I also decreased the width. (See my fast peasant dress sewing tutorial HERE.)

Then, in my quest to use up my patriotic fabric stash (see HERE), I added these big blue and white starry bows. I actually ran out (HOORAY!) and had to make a quick run to the fabric store for more-I had to settle for some with red stars, too. I have a tutorial coming up next week for the bows.

Grammy came over and brought Jamberry nail wraps, the girls found some hair clips from Independence Day three years ago– the last time I made dresses for July 4th, and they played with the kittens while I snapped pictures.

The looked pretty and festive… at least for a few minutes. 🙂

Happy Independence Day!!
