So I got busy the final couple days of Kids Clothes Week and cranked out a couple cute dresses for the girls! I also got crazy and made myself a dress - with knit! The dress is the The Casual Lady pattern. It should've been pretty easy to make once cut out, but I was working with some really thin knit. But I had to make it work. And I matched all the stripes at the seams. I never match fabric patterns at the seams. It is pretty comfortable and I love the mint color!
I love this chicken fabric! I don't have the name off hand, but I ordered all the kids' fabric from the fabricworm and my knit from Girl Charlee. I made the dress using the Party Dress pattern for the bodice and then added sleeves by tracing the arm holes and adding an extra 2 inches for them to ruffle up. I also had some red piping that I wanted to try out, so I split the bodice in half to add some chicken fabric with the flowers. (oops, didn't line up the chickens well) I think I was most excited to add the lace I had on the sleeves.
I forgot to add loops to the back for buttons so I put a zipper in the back.
This bee and honeycomb fabric was so beautiful too! I stared at my materials until this variation of the dress hit me. More lace, more buttons, and more ruffles!
I had so much fun with these dresses. They remind me of summer and going to the farm to get our veggies. Can't wait until that starts up again.
