Kids Clothes Week Day 2: Shutt Dress

It's day two of Kids Clothes Week! 

And, in case you haven't seen, I'm having a GIVEAWAY!

My daughter chose this dress (Shutt Dress by SewSet.) for Kids Clothes Week. I had pinned it months ago (here) with the hopes of making it, so I was really excited that she chose it and added it to my goals for the week!

I've been really frugal about buying fabric to make anything. I just have the hardest time spending an amount of money on fabric when I know I can buy something similar for less at any store on the high street. To make up for this, I keep my eye out for anything special at charity shops. I bought a sheet almost a year ago because I thought the colors and flowers would make a really pretty dress for my little girl. It was perfect for this dress!

 I didn't attempt the bunting because I know myself too well, and I knew it would make this project more of a burden than an enjoyment. 

I think it is still absolutely adorable, even without the bunting, and it's obvious that my little girl feels pretty in it, which is the most important thing! 

Great for spinning! Great for playing!

Even though, it was rainy and grey when I sewed this dress, it's going to loads of fun to wear in the sunny summer!

  1. This is cute! I have the same problem with buying fabric, but mostly I'm afraid to spend money because I think I'll mess up the pattern and waste it. I need more sewing practice for sure!

  2. Super adorable!

    I agree, fabric is often way too pricey! I'll be keeping on eye on the sheets now at my local thrift shops! :-)

  3. What a cute dress. Sadly my daughter is too old to dress in such pretty things

  4. This is really cute! I have this pattern too just haven't made it yet and happy to see how cute it turns out. I love the twirl factor. Actually, I like it better with out the bunting. Thanks for inspiring me. I will be making this one soon.
