This is Dress A from Happy Homemade Sew Chic Kids by Tuttle Publishing. If you have children aged 2-8, you need this book - it is fab-u-lous. Twenty designs, all with the same flair as their adult patterns. Easy to sew but maximum style. Love it.
This dress has the cutest little ruffle sleeves that are just so pretty. You sew them into the bodice like a sandwich filling between the yoke and the yoke lining, then turn it all the right way around by pulling it through one of the back yoke pieces. It's like magic!
The back is supposed to be closed with matching rouleau loops, but I wussed out and used thin bias binding folded and sewn together - still looks lovely though. This version is size 2, but after making dress design J, I knew the sizing was very generous; so, I lopped five inches of the skirt pieces, but even after doing this it will fit her for ages.
All in: two rather nice dresses from 2 meters of fabric - not bad. And although Immy and I now have matching dresses, we won't be wearing them at the same time - that would be too much!
What do you do with your fabric scraps? I'm always loath to throw away sizeable chunks of fabric, but at the same time I already have enough clutter in my life with all the kids' paraphernalia - so, I'm trying to be ruthless: use it or lose it.
