Show & Tell: 1, 2, 3, Frock!

Here we are at another Thursday :)
Show & Tell Thursday's
How's your January shaping up?
Show & Tell: 1, 2, 3, Frock!
As you can see, my 3 blossoms ended up with their 3 summer dresses. After having each chosen their fabric a couple of months ago, I got round to sewing them up using this pattern, in the week before Christmas.
Show & Tell: 1, 2, 3, Frock!

The pink one was actually only completed last week as I had initially done a different dress from a different pattern.  However it was terrible in fit and size and I really didn't like it, so we went back to the the first pattern and whipped up the last version in less than a couple of hours.Show & Tell: 1, 2, 3, Frock!
It is super easy and a quick wee dress to sew.  I did struggle a little with the sizing though as the dresses seemed huge on my girls (despite having measured them, etc).  I added the ties to the back of the blue one and it's still going to last her a number of years simply because there is so much room in it!  The orange one fitted the best from the start, but the pink one I took in a bit around the sides to fit better.
Do you have any tips or tricks for me for the next time round?  Anything I need to keep in mind/consider when deciding what size to make when it comes to kids clothes?
What summery creations have you been making?
Hope you're all having a great start to 2014 :)
