It is the first day of Spring, not that you'd know it this weekend, we were nearly blown off our hill  yesterday, but I have been slowly spring cleaning the house and sorting out the girl's clothes and planning what I need to sew. There are a few little girls birthdays coming up soon and I thought I would sew for them too.
A dress from the same Ottobre as these overalls. It is basically just the same pattern, but quicker to make as there aren't all those snaps to deal with. I made it a little shorter as dresses aren't that practical while babies are still crawling.
 Some matching pants. I used McCalls 6494 which looks great and was easy to make. I didn't bother with the binding, just hemmed them and added the elastic, but I think they might be a bit poofy and large. I found a pattern in an Ottobre after I finished so I will try them next time.
