Summer Time is on it's way

It's only spring, but with the 90° whether we've been having, I say it's time to breakout the summer wardrobe and start the summer sewing!.

We have a dinner to go to for my husbands work, and we are able to bring the little's so I decided to make a  cool summer dress for Sprout.
I found some cute fabric for only $1.00 a yard at Joann's.
Don't know what it is about this fabric, but I just remember my Lola (Grandmother {I'm part Philippine}) wearing the Mumu style dresses like this.
So I cut about a half a yard off and measured from just under Sprout's arm-pits down to about her ankle. I got 16" inches. I added 2" inches to give it a nice hem at the top and bottom. I surred the top using elastic thread, Leaving about half an inch for a ruffle at the very top, and surred about 10 rows a half inch apart down.

We were having a Roarsome! day. (Sprout's new love is "Henry HuggleMonster")
