Dandy Jane's Etsy Shoppe. This is the Pleat dress, and it is definitely one of my favorites. 'Love the front pleat. It can be either contrasting fabric, like this one, or sewn of the same fabric as the dress. The fabric is a cotton/polyester blend in a geometric-print lime green with aqua and avocado. Kinda unique and artsy, isn't it? To see this pattern's difficulty rating and its matching hair bow, follow the link below my signature.

Central Park Swing Coat. The jeans can be cut off to a capri length, or ankle length. The choice is yours. The jeans pictured above are the flare leg fit; they tend to work well for adding ruffles. These jeans are a size 4, ankle length. Each ruffle was cut at 6"X30". Then, simply sew the two shorter ends of each ruffle right sides together. Next, sew a narrow hem around the longer edge of each ruffle. Right sides together, pin each ruffle to each jeans leg with the edges even. Make sure that the ruffle's seam is aligned with the jeans' inside leg seam. Gather and stitch close to the edge, through the jeans and each ruffle. Due to the thickness, use a larger needle such as a number 14 or 16. If you do not have a serger, zig-zag or edge stitch each finished leg. Finis! Yay! That adorable little girl now has some fancy ruffled jeans!

The Scientific Seamstress' Reversible Romper that Granny made for her. (That is not an affiliate link. 'Just thought you may want to know where to purchase the darling pattern). Who ever thought to designate a holiday for grandparents, kudos to them. Wishing you all a happy day, whether you are a grandparent or not. Prim Summer blessings.
