This week, as part of my personal countdown to KCWC, I’m throwing pictures at the blog of things I’ve made for the kids this year that never got blogged. It’s my own little challenge, to try and “clean out the virtual closet” before I go and make more clothes for them next week. I’ll even show you some of the new kids patterns I’ve been working on. Fun Fun!
You might remember a similar dress from earlier this year (this post)…it was in the works this spring but got set aside for other projects (ahem, Washi.). This design has a trimmer silhouette than the Charlie Dress and is slightly easier to construct, but with a similar modern style. I love that you can mix up all kinds of fabrics to get totally different looks with this dress.
She doesn’t like to wear this dress either. No reason given. I have pulled it out of the drawer more times than I can count and had it rejected, every time. That’s OK. I love it, so I’ve been hanging this one up on the clothesline in my sewing room. It’s so cheerful it makes the whole room happy.
The fabrics are all Little Folks voile by Anna Maria Horner, which you can still find around here and there, though it’s getting harder to find. Voile is super-soft and silky and fun to work with (though I find them a little tricky with fussy patterns, this one is perfect for it).
What do you think?
