This dress has cool and unique style, fits great, and is extremely comfortable. In my book, that’s a win-win-win. It’s also a great way to use up that leftover cotton print from another project that’s been sitting in your stash.
How about that yoke detail on the front and back?
I made a size medium with Robert Kaufman chambray and a quilting cotton print I got on sale at Hawthorne Threads back in January. I did have to adjust the bodice a little bit to accommodate my smallish shoulders — but otherwise, the fit is spot on.
Believe it or not, this exact fabric combination has made a previous appearance in my household . . .
This is Kiki’s Hide & Seek Dress by Oliver & S, made for Kids Clothes Week this past spring — a dress that came out very well and that has been worn very little. If only I had known that Kiki would be establishing and vigilantly implementing her new “Skirts & Shirts Only” policy right when this one came off the sewing machine, I might have made her something else with these spiffy fabrics :). So, I was so glad to have enough left of both to pull off something for me. And only now do I realize how similar these dresses really are. Crazy!
Make it Perfect also has a kid size Mini Poppy — I wonder if there’s enough of this fabric left to make one of those for Lulu, or would that be overdoing it??
