I made this cute little sunfrock from a thirft store vintage sheet. It is pure white cotton with aqua blue stripes, with a sweet lace trim across the front.co
The single layer of cotton and the loose style makes this dress nice and cool to wear on summer days.

The dress is a trapeze style, much wider at the bottom than the top, and has a cute uneven ruffle to finish it off. Perfect for twirling.
The spaghetti straps, have been top stitched and there are cute little knots at the end just in case of fraying.

There are no buttons or zips, just pop over her head and tie up the bows. You can tell which is the front because of the lace (the last photo shows the back).
Wear over a t-shirt for extra sun protection.

All internal seams have been finished with the overlocker for durability.

The pattern is size 2, to fit a child with chest 53cm (21 inches) and waist 51cm (20 inches). However, it is a baggy style, and with ties can be adjusted, so it should fit your little girl as she grows. It can even become a swing top instead of a dress. The last photo from the pattern envelope gives a good idea of the fit.
Width across the front under the arms, when stretched out flat: 36cm (14 inches)
Length from the neckline down to the ruffle hem: 34cm (13 inches), it is designed to be knee length.

Handmade by me in my smoke free home in the country. The sheet from the op-shop was washed in hot water, dried in the sun and then ironed to make sure it was clean before use.

It is ready to ship. I am happy to make another colour or size for you, just let me know if you would like a custom order. The pattern dates from the early 80s.

If the price for postage ends up being less than what you have paid I will refund you the difference straight away.
