Toddler Maxi Dress

I am always looking for sewing projects that involve something other than the stuff I'm typically sewing (ie baby accessories for the shop).  My favorite little person to sew for right now is my Jessalyn.  So, when I stumbled across a super cute maxi dress from Heidi & Finn, I couldn't resist!

I've blogged about my experience with Heidi & Finn patterns before...remember the sweet Red Poppy Dress I made this spring?  Well.  Just to remind you - I love their patterns.  They are affordable, adorable and super easy to follow.  In one afternoon and I had this cute little number:

(you can find her headband HERE)

I was a little worried about the length of the dress; I went back and forth trying to decide if I should shorten it up or leave it long.  I didn't want her tripping over it all the time.  I was just too in love with the idea of this sweet boho outfit that I couldn't bring myself to shorten it. Luckily, Jessa has had no problem with the longer length.  She managed a full day running around the aquarium without one trip or tumble.


It is the perfect summer dress for super hot Arizona summers (And autumn.  And spring.).  I think we'll be getting a great deal of use out of this adorable dress!

Have you tried Heidi & Finn patterns yet?  If not - go for it!  Oh.  And by the way?  This is in no way sponsored by Heidi & Finn.  I just really love their stuff.  A lot.  Happy sewing!!
