Remember the Little Debbie dress I made for Corinne earlier this month? Well, I’m back with another one, this time for my big girl, Ellery.
I tested this pattern in the 18 month size, but I was really looking forward to sewing one up for my 5 year old! I made a size 6 and I think It’s pretty right on.
I love this little pattern. I really do.
I love how different this version is from Coco’s vintage-y one.
I love that it’s got a sort of Fall-Mod thing going.
But I think what I love most about it, is that it used to be my dress!
A shapeless shift dress that I wore a small handful of times, but has sat in my closet for almost 5 years.
I made a couple of modifications to the pattern: I chose to cut my front piece on the fold to keep the print intact. Also, since this fabric is very thin, I fully lined it, using the original lining from the old dress. That’s not hard to figure out at all, the pattern has a bodice lining already… I just extended it all the way the length of the dress.
Suz is offering up a free copy of the pattern to one of you sweet readers! Just leave me a comment here and I’ll randomly pick a winner next week.
