With school coming to a close, the birthday party invites seem to be rolling in. Usually I will just head on out to our local Toys r Us and let the girls pick something out, but for some reason I decided I really wanted to give out some homemade dresses this time around. I think it was a combination of the growing pile of clutter in my girls room, the garage sales we were in the middle of coordinating, and the accumulating piles of gorgeous fabrics on my sewing table. Any which way you go, I decided a Forget Me Knot Dress was called for.
I started to think about it, and felt so bad showing up to a kids birthday party with CLOTHES. I mean, I know my girls like dresses. But do they really want to open up boxes of clothes on their birthday? Wait a few more years, and they will be thrilled I’m sure…but not just yet.
That is when the idea of a Doll sized version of the Forget me Knot dress came to me.
My girls have 4 dolls that they are constantly changing, and that is not even bringing into count all of the teddy bears that tend to get in on the dress up action! HA!

Once you have sewn all the way around, turn your dress right side out through 3″ opening.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and until next time…
