The Whole Grian Baby Raglan Shift Dress

Here is the finished product...


...a $2 op shop ladies skirt (see previous post) refashioned into a pretty little girls dress that fits perfectly!


I made the size 2, and cant wait to make this dress again - it will be cool and comfortable, and offer some sun protection for her shoulders, which is the only downfall of the little tie shouldered dresses she already has. Im also tempted to get the halter dress pattern - looks very cute as well. You can find the Whole Grain Baby patterns here.

Great job on using a skirt to make this, it looks great. Can't wait to give this pattern a go.

Email WGB beofre buying the halter. It was pre-release Nov last year but some of the ladies who bought it are still waiting on the pattern as it has not been finalised for sale as yet :(

Lovely!! Makes me wish I had a little girl to put it on but, alas, all boys----and they're 20, 17, & 11. I guess I'll just have to hope for a grand-daughter someday.

Blessings, Patti
