Summer Dreams Petal Knot Dress
I know it's been quiet arounde here the past few months, but I've had a sick little boy for quite a while. I feel like we're finally getting over all of our sickness and I'm ready to move on! It's spring and we should be out and enjoying the warmer temperatures.
I've had the fabrics for this dress picked out for quite a while. The bodice is made from a vintage sheet that I received from Oh Fransson's swap oh so long ago! I love that print and thought it would be perfect in a dress for a little girl.
I used a pink cotton gauze fabric for the dress portion and I really like how it adds a great texture to the dress. It's light weight and airy... perfect for a warm summer day. I made the dress extra full, so that you don't have to worry about it being see through.
This one is up for sale in my etsy shop! It's truly a one of a kind dress and will look so adorable on a sweet little girl. The dress is a size 4T (there are more measurements of it in the etsy listing).
The pattern is my version of Sandi Henderson's Claire Dress. (p.s. - you can't see the seam allowances on the bodice, it's just the sun shining through it from the back when I was outside taking pictures)
Have a great day!
