This dress was supposed to have been done for Kid’s Clothes Week!! Yes, I know that was a long time ago. I don’t know why it took so much time to actually make it, but every single part of the process took ages to make and even the weather was not helpful for the photos with so much wind and rain! Oh well, finally made it and I’m writing about it 🙂
This dress was made for Little lady M, to match the one I made F during KCW and for that reason I used the same poplin fabric. The pattern is the view a “Dress with Frilled Shoulders” from the Japanese Book “Sew Chic Kids”. Once again I made a size 2 (100 cm) with a few small changes and although looking at the pictures now, it seems a bit tight in the chest, in fact is not and she can move freely without any complain 😉
The changes I made were not significant, just made the frills double sided to match the details from F’s dress, added a red cotton lace to the front yoke, made bigger button loops because the measures provided in the book turned out to be too small (?!) and instead of making the hem with 4 cm, made with just 2 cm.
Once again the photos had to be inside 😦 as there is no good weather forecast for the next days… I should be used to this by now!
Despite the long time it took me to have the dress ready I like it. I like the frills and the way it fits M. She liked it as well and the basket she is wearing is meant to be for a pic-nic she said!
Hope you are having a nice week 🙂
