Summer Tops: Frost and Minions

Summer tops are a favorite.
For me.
My girl would prefer a dress over anything in her closet. While this may be a bit short for a dress, she can continue to wear it as a tunic and top later on. Win, win!

I just love this version of Anne Kelle's Girl Friends fabric called Princesses in Frost. Amazing!

I definitely knew my girl needed something made from it so I made her a fairly simple top with the Frost fabric and some pink lattice for the bodice portion. It's just lovely.

Speaking of lovely. Who doesn't like a dress with a little flare?

I continued my love of simple tops to make a minion dress/top as well. The longer bodice helped to add some much needed length to make it more like a dress and less like a top.

So much fun squeezed into super cute tops!

Oxford Sunglasses Dress

Oh, how I love a dress that looks like a shirt. I used the Peek-A-Boo Pattern Shop oxford shirt pattern to make this cute dress. I added some features like button tabs on the sleeves, belt loops for a waist belt, and pockets. The belt is a little long, and I plan to shorten it a little.

Pockets are a necessity for any dress! I love the colorful sunglasses on this print. It screams summer fun! And maybe a trip to the beach.

Summer will be on the way and that makes me happy!

P.S. Yes, I know I have been away for quite a while. Who knew life would be so busy with both kids in school?! I am going to try my best to get back on track and continue logging the things I make on here.

Hope you have a great day!
