When is it too late to sew new stuff for summer? Not the end of August for sure, if you’re in the midwest! We will possibly have days warm enough to wear this through November or maybe even in December! If all else fails, throw on a sweater 🙂
My daughter loves maxi dresses, and I knew she would wear this thing out through the end of summer! This is the Tahiti Tank dress pattern from New Horizons Designs.
I made a maxi with a fun tropical floral print from Pretty Posh Prints. I thought this was a great way to showcase the print, and make a statement. I’ve been saving this fabric for something, I didn’t know what, but here it is 🙂 I chose the racerback version, and the maxi version has two side slits included.
I also love the tie that is an option on this pattern, but I liked it on the knee length dress better, so I made a solid version too! I chose the straight hem option, and the full back on this one.
This is also a double brushed poly from Pretty Posh Prints, which I bought to make winter dresses, because I love the color, but I think it will carry us into fall nicely!
As always, the size range of New Horizons kids patterns makes me so happy. They run from 12-18 months up through 16, which means there’s no weird cross-over stage when my girls won’t fit into the girls or women’s patterns! Give this one a try if you need a satisfying summer sew!
