Got 20 minutes?  Then you NEED to make yourself (or the lil missy in your life) a fabulous summer sundress out of pre shirred fabric. The good news is you don’t need a pattern to make this great little sundress.

I mentioned last week that I came home from Joann’s with all sorts of craft goodies.

One of those “goodies” was this gorgeous pre shirred rayon fabric. While we were shopping, my little missy took one look at this pretty floral fabric and insisted I make her a long flowy summer sundress with the fabric.  

I was more than happy to comply as this type of no pattern sundress is a “breeze” to make and luckily, I had a 50% off coupon I could use on a cut of non-sale fabric.

Quick and Easy No Churn Peach Sherbet

Since we only picked the ripest fruit, after a few days and eating what we could, I peeled and chopped the rest for the freezer.

First up is this collection of burgundy, pink and tan quilting cottons.  I intended this for a quilt and never made one with the fabric.  Maybe someone else will!
