I love sewing for the granddaughters. Hubby says that sewing is all I do.I found these patterns called Olive Ann Designs at a quilt shop. They really are neat. They don't have zippers. This one was called "Eazy Peazy Pleats". The hard part was that the dress had 34 pleats each exactly 3/4 inch wide. If you were off a little the bodice lining wouldn't fit. I ended up doing most of the pleats over again. The rest of the dress went together easily. I made it out of Seersucker. The border was cut from another piece of seersucker.
