The other day in my New Year, New Sew blog post, I wrote about not being able to access my photos of my daughter in her Tammy dress. Now that we are home from vacation, I can share the photos with you! I absolutely love the new Tammy dress pattern from Annelaine. The pattern comes with so many options:

  • Dolman Sleeves
  • Lined or Unlined Bodice
  • Circle or Gathered Skirt
  • Peplum and Tunic Lengths
  • Cuffed Sleeves
  • Optional Sleeve Tabs
  • Multiple Back Strap Options

Annelaine patterns have an extended size chart, which is so wonderful. There are so many girls who don’t fit in just the standard girls sizes, and the extended sizing helps with that. The Tammy dress comes in sizes from 9 months to 20.

I decided to make the lined bodice, circle skirt and criss-cross straps for my daughter. I used some french terry from Sew So English for the bodice and a grey triblend knit from Knitpop for the skirt.

For the criss-cross straps, I pinned them in place before attaching them. Then I adjusted as necessary until I had them in the perfect place for my daughter.

Of course I had to make a matching doll dress! I love when I find patterns that have doll sizes as well.

Sometimes my favorite photos are the unposed ones, my husband captured this shot of my daughter arranging her dolls dress and there is just something I love about the photo.
