If you haven't already heard, bandana dresses are probably the easiest and quickest sewing project for little girls. Last summer, I started collecting bandanas (2 of each) for the day my daughter would be big enough to wear them. Depending on your child's size, these dresses should start to fit when they are approx. 12-18 months old. Annelise is 19 months now, so they are just the right size for her.
Here is a tutorial I've posted previously with all the instructions.
And here are the 3 bandana dresses I whipped up during naptime a few days ago:
The petite floral and patriotic star bandanas are from Walmart, and the damask bandanas are from Hobby Lobby.
These are so easy to make - especially for beginning sewers - so I hope you'll try one!
