As I mentioned this time at Sewjourn I decided to sew for the girls - and this was my fourth make, the second dress for the smallest kid.
This is a Riley Blake print that I could resist, it tells the story of Red Riding Hood, with a slight twist as it mentions her 'harmless wolfie friend'.

I used a very basic A-line pattern from Kwik Sew 3862 - I love that for a dress like this the fabric does all the work.
It's super-easy with front and back facings, a front and a back - that's it, zip in and away you go.
|The plan is to wear it with sandals - not tights and long-sleeves|
The border print is very sweet and she loves this dress.
I made the Medium (7-8) and so it's a little big for her - but that just means she will get lots of wear out of it.
|Perhaps the most adorable border print ever|
I didn't pay enough attention when cutting it and so the back seam is ever-so-slightly off at the back where the zip went in - but it's well-matched at the side seams.
|Easy to wear and a great basic A-line pattern.|
The sun is shining today so I will try and get pics of the other dresses too.
