Ok, I manage to make one more thing for Kids Clothes Week!. I finished a dress on Sunday morning.
I made a Solis dress pattern designed by Sofilantjes. This dress wasn’t into my plans for the week, but after seeing this one the first day of KCW, I couldn’t resist a spontaneous project went to print the pattern I had a while ago and make one for Miss VI.
The fabric is a design by Andrea Lauren that I was hoarding for a year! yes you are reading correctly, ONE YEAR sitting there in my stash waiting for the perfect dress to be made. And I think this is the one, I love the circular skirt, but also the racer back it is a pretty detail.
It is a size 5 and the fit is so nice on my daughter, besides she loves it so much! She has been wearing two days in a row! -now needs a good wash!-. I asked her what she likes of this dress and her answer was: “the feathers and that I can put it on myself!” Although she likes dresses I made, the ones she wears the most are made in jersey and don’t have any closures to fiddle around -zips or buttons- then this make makes me feel seriously happy because I know is going to have good wear and tear. Sincerely I feel sad when I open her drawer to to find some of the dresses I have made unworn.
The pattern it is very easy to follow, I didn’t have any problems with the construction as is straightforward once you add the neck and back strap. Even I was a bit carried away and made another dress, but for a birthday present and I will show you soon after we deliver it to its new owner.
There you go, two projects finished during the week! score because these days I’m in super procrastination mode, not only about sewing clothes but writing about it too.
