After resting and finishing my long overdue curtains, this past week I decided to finally tackle some dresses I've been meaning to make. Before I had my Easter weekend visit to the hospital, I had just finished washing all the fabric from the dresses and was ready to trace the patterns. So now, four weeks later - they are finished!
These dresses are made with a pattern by Mod Kids called Addison
This is my first real sewing project where I made a piece of clothing. I have done 2 poodle skirts before, but they don't count. This is the first time I followed a pattern and had no help. I must say I am really proud of myself! It does help that the pattern is so cute! I wanted something a little warmer for our tempermental Canadian weather.
I picked up the matching shoes so the girls could wear them to church. I was surprised I could find that color of red. The fabric is from Lizzy House's Outfoxed collection. When I first saw Outfoxed, I knew I had to make something with the blue hedgehogs and red pearl bracelets. Tracking down enough fabric for the dresses was another matter as this collection has been so popular.
I even made little matching hairclips for the girls. As you can see, my girls absolutely love the dresses!
I definitely recommend this pattern - it goes from size 2T-10, although I don't think I would tackle a 2T as I made a 3T and it was pretty tight as it was. The sleeves were the most challenging part with the tight armband, but it all worked out.
