In Portugal there is saying that goes something like “no two without three” wich means that if something happens twice it will definitely happen one more time.
I got to test size 9, but by my child measurements it should have been an 8. I have this awkward tendacie to size up when I sew, so the dress isn’t as fit as it should be (my fault) but I love how it looks on my daugther.
I also cheated a little and decided to do a box pleat instead of gathers on the front skirt pannel, because my daugther doesn’t like “princess” dresses anymore. 😦
On the back I choose to do the button placket instead of the invisible zipper, but will definitely tried it the next time I sew this dress, just got to get over my panic attack every time I think of that. 😀
Do to a small error (which is now corrected, thanks to testing 😉 ) the placket became to wide, so I went with larger buttons and sew them unevenly. I must say I love the way it looks, it’s like a little field of flowers. ❤
I love everything about this dress from the cap sleeves, to the pocket detail (there are two more options) and the engenius neckline.
I felt like this dress had a vintage inspiration, but was totaly conviced of that when my daugther stated:
– Ohhh mother you sewed me an 80’s dress !!!
To wich I replied:
– Why? Don’t you like it?
To which she yelled:
– I loooooove it ❤
Want to see…
Hugs and Kisses ❤
