Round Neck Sundress by That Darn Kat

Last night I tried That Darn Kat's Round Neck Top/Sundress pattern ($9.95) for the first time. You can find it at I ended up adding a rolled hemmed ruffle at the bottom of the dress instead of the band to change the look of it a tad bit. I'm so pleased with the results!

Next time I might sew a longer dress with a ruffle to see how that'll turn out, but I had specific look in mind that I wanted to try. I was wondering how it would look if Serenity wore a pair of knee length leggings ($3.99 at Target) with a short ruffled round neck sundress. Well, I think it turned out to be a really cute Summer outfit!

Whaddya think?

I used Heather Bailey's beautiful and bright Pop Garden Paisley Lime and Pink Peonies fabrics. You should be able to find it at your local quilt shop, or on Ebay like I did. Etsy has sellers with excellent fabrics too! Anthem Fabrics, Sew Love Fabrics, Aliyah's Hope Chest, Fabric Bee, and Marie-Madeline Studio all have a wonderful, large selection of beautiful fabrics.

That Darn Kat's Round Neck Top/Sundress pattern is a fairly easy project to sew. It'll be a breeze for intermediate sewers, but a beginner shouldn't have a problem either. The pattern has extremely detailed instructions with lots of helpful step by step photos. Just make sure to take your time and read all the instructions carefully. You'll be very happy with your results if you do!

Have fun sewing!

I think.....that Serenity......has the best wardrobe of any child in the whole world. I love how eclectic and individual it is! I am totally jealous and feeling like my jeans/tank top/flipflop wardrobe needs some sprucing up ;) Why can't adults wear ruffle pants!?
