Oh, we're halfway through Kid's Clothes Week, and my eyes are about to cross! But I am having so much fun participating in this sewing challenge.
In keeping with the theme of clothes based on storybooks, I offer up this little dress based a book Zoe loves, Lots of Dots by Craig Frazier.
I had put this stitch dot white skirt in my fabric stash a year ago, but had never been inspired to use it. And in fact, I sat for at least a half hour at my table before getting up the nerve to cut it, thinking, "Well, what if I actually do slim down to a size 8 again?" Finally I said a little prayer, made a committed snip and broke my paralysis.
I used The Sewing Rabbit's free pattern, The Jackie O Dress. You can find it here. I paired the white stitch dot skirt with Riley Blake's small red dots cotton, which you can find many places, including here.
I got to try making covered buttons for the first time, thanks to a little kit given to me by a friend. I really like them!
