A couple of weeks ago, I showed you my tunic top. It's not often I sew for myself and I was particularly pleased, as I had sewn this top without a commercial pattern, tracing around an existing garment instead.

Last week I told you about the rainbow dress I would be making and also talked about the process of making what ended up being a wearable (muslin) sundress. Here is the end result - a maxi length rainbow dress. Today I'll show you how I made the rainbow dress and how you can make one, too.

I was recently asked if I could make a Rainbow Dress, similar to this one on Etsy. It looked easy enough - a simple shirred bodice, with several gathered layers for the skirt. As Little Miss doesn't live with me, I thought it best to make a muslin first. I NEVER make muslins, but, as I wasn't using a pattern and the fabric was not mine, I thought it best.

Ha, ha... I didn't make this top! It's one I bought last Winter, or maybe the year before, and I've worn it SO much. I like the style and colour, it fits well and it's oh, so comfortable. And, to top it off, it's made in Australia. Most of our garment industry has gone off shore, so it's really pleasing to see a brand which has some of their items made here.

It's been many years since I've sewn a t-shirt and I'd forgotten just how quick and easy they are to sew. Little Mister agree to a photo shoot wearing the first of two t-shirts I've made him, but with a limit of six photos. You can see him counting with his fingers in some of the photos... LOL!!!
