There’s aways something special about that first-day-of-school dress, no matter how old you are. As a kid, I remember having my dress picked out weeks before the first day of school rolled around. But you know what was a total bummer? When I was wearing the same dress as someone else! That’s why we’ve brought you five first-day-of-school dress tutorials so your little girl can fee like that diamond in a dozen (that she is)!
This lovely First-Day Dress from Dana Made It is an ingenious hybrid from two of her other patterns. I don’t know about you, but I think it worked out seamlessly!
This Repurposed Dress from The Crazy Tailor is also an amazing hybrid of a dress. She used two women’s dresses and a different top pattern, and it turned out beautifully (and comfy)!
This Peaches and Cream Dress from Craftiness is Not Optional is a great season-transitional dress as we move from summer to fall. Love those colors too!
You’d never guess this Sail Away School Dress from At Second Street is made from a men’s shirt! I love running across surprises like this one, and I love the tie collar detail even more!
This Geranium Dress pattern from Delia Creates was originally created by Made by Rae, but Delia was so in love with it (like we are) that she created a whole bouquet of geranium dresses! This one was our favorite.
