Sewing fantastical dresses for little girls is quite possibly the best sewing project to take on. After all, you get to see her face brighten every time she wears it. That’s why we love this sparkling celestial glitter dress dreamed up by Charm Stitch. Any girl would be thrilled to have this dress for summer. The best part is that it’s easy to do. If you’ve been thinking of delving into garment sewing, this could be your first project.
While the glitter is certainly the main attraction, we also love the hand stitching on the capped sleeves and down the back, not to mention that jersey fabric. Together they give the dress a sophisticated handmade charm.
When you’ve finished making the pattern (you start from a T-shirt) and have sewed up the dress, all that’s left is to apply the glitter with foam pouncers. Who knew embellishment could be so easy and fun?
