I created this simple to make Quilt - Sweet Little Dresses from my love of little dresses. I remember my mother hanging up my childhood dresses in my small closet, each one a different color. Those pretty dresses hanging side by side seemed to make me happy as a little girl! When spring arrived that meant pastel cottons with lace, trim and pretty buttons. I loved Easter because it usually meant my mother would buy cotton fabric with matching buttons and sew a new dress or two for me to wear to church or to play in. She was an amazing seamstress and made most of my clothes when I was little.
The pattern is made to be very simple. It can be embellished or enhanced with buttons, lace and little trims. The dresses are adhered to the center block but not sewn or appliquéd on. This makes the block much simpler to put together. This small quilt is what I have now termed a decorative quilt, or decorative miniature. As a quilter the standard quilt making techniques do not always apply when working on tiny quilt blocks. The blocks in this quilt measures approximately 1" x 1". Fabric from older vintage children's clothes could be used. Special designs like smocking, or quilting or lace embellished outfits could be cut highlighting those designs when cutting out this dress pattern.
The 12 block quilt measures approximately 5" x 7". The quilt can be made smaller by leaving off the fabric sashing (framed strips of quilt) or making it longer or wider by just adding another strip. My instructions walk you through the process of how to put the quilt together.
