Have you read any of Ayano Imai's books? We have three that we love: Puss in Boots: Chester; and Mr. Brown's Fantastic Hat. I created this dress for Zoe based on the fabulous reds, oranges and browns in Puss in Boots. I think it will be perfect for a Thanksgiving dress -- remember, we live in Texas and usually spend the winter holidays in short sleeves. Are we blessed?
This dress is based on my go-to pattern, Child's Summer Frock at the Burda website. I shortened the bodice and lengthened the skirt, used pleats instead of gathers, and spliced a middle panel in the bodice. Fabrics are all repurposed, including two napkins from World Market!
