Apple Pie Dress

Pin It

This is my new favorite.  We have dubbed it the Apple Pie Dress.  Why? because it looks so sweet on and it is as American as.... you guessed it... apple pie.

Perfect for picnics, parades, fireworks, and day trips to the Alaska Sea Life Center.

You should have heard her squeal when she touched that thing. 



It was a little chilly down by the ocean in Seward, so we had to throw on a little sweater. I also made a little pair of ruffled capris just for added sweetness.  Can you believe that view.  I grew up in Alaska and still the awesome beauty of it never fails to impress me.  


But back home here in Utah this is just right for keeping cool.


And although it was the picnic plaid print that originally inspired this dress, I find I really love the chevron seam on the bodice.  It was my first time trying chevron seams and I am very please with how they turned out. 

Making a chevron seam is actually pretty easy.


When you cut out your pieces cut first piece so the stripes are how you would like them and then cut your second piece turned 90 degrees from that.  You can check that you did it right by laying the pieces right sides together and they should line up.  Then sew then together with the lines all lined up and you should have a perfect little V.
