I just finished making 3 matching summer dresses for my little girls. They came out really cute. I thought I would share a tip for marking the back of the dress (these are tie shoulder summer dresses, and it would be hard to figure the front from the back) and the size/owner. I had some sew in interfacing. I cut out clothing label size tags and wrote the girls names on them with permanent marker. Then I just added it to the back seam before I sewed the garment and when I turned it I tacked the bottom down with a row of stitches (I get bugged with tags always popping up). So now on wash day I can easily tell which dress belongs to which daughter. I know that tags can be purchased and sewn in, but I thought that this was much more frugal.
