I mentioned in my last post that I'm a little over sewing pink dresses - I think this is the last one I'm going to make for quite a while. In terms of my KCWC
challenge, this dress was a complete failure. I bought the material to make it and not only did I not use a japanese pattern I bought a pattern too. Argh...
On the upside - I love the finished product! I bought the Blank Slate Basics Pristine Swing Dress
from Melly Sews
and really like how it came together - simple, simple, simple but with a lovely finish. It's definitely a pattern that I will pull out and use again.
It has a pieced yoke - hello pink!
and a pretty nifty back placket....
This is the 'quick we need to take a photo before we run out the door to kindergarten' photo.
Despite the fact that I broke all the rules I set myself for KCWC
my kids' wardrobes are looking a lot healthier and enjoyed sewing for them.
I think I might put away kids clothing patterns for a while though - I've a few other project on my mind. How about you?
