I’m in the midst of making my Pride and Prejudice and Zombies costume, but as much as I’m enjoying it, there is a whole lot of cream going on with the dress. I decided to whip up a colourful little dress for my friend’s wee girl.
If you have read my previous posts, you’ll know that I was lucky enough to receive a box of 68 vintage patterns for my birthday from a friend’s mum. This little dress is the first pattern used from that amazing gift.
I used this Butterick 4246, View B – Sleeveless A-line dress with large bow detail in back. When I opened up the envelope, I found the pink linen and a pink zipper tucked inside. I was told by the gifter, that her family member remembers the pink dress!
I found just enough of this quilting cotton to make the dress in my stash. I love how colourful and cheerful this fabric is. I like to use quilting fabrics for kids clothes. They usually hold up pretty good to wash and wear and they’re easy to work with.
I’m addicted to using Hug Snug – even in kids clothes. If I had just over-locked the seams, the dress would have been whipped up in an afternoon, BUT as I said – I’m addicted.
Here are pictures of the finished product:
Now, back to the zombie dress with me!
