I had to make a few minor adjustments to the tops I made, and so I transferred those over to the dress version. The only additional thing I did here was to take out most of the hip curve, because I have no hips!! And I drafted a Peter Pan collar, because I think they are super cute 🙂
It was my first time drafting a collar, but after searching around on the interwebs I found several very helpful tutorials and ended up following this one. I made the collar with a yellow/gold eyelet, and lined it with a Kona cotton that matched perfectly!
The dress fabric is some Nani Iro double gauze that I have been hoarding for a while. I looooooove Nani Iro fabric. I want to go to Japan with a couple of empty suitcases and fill them with fabric!! My 5 year old told me she wants a dress JUST LIKE THIS. And I think I have enough fabric left to make that happen- it is Kids Clothes Week after all, and I have been totally slacking!
I have another Laurel dress to show you but that will have to wait until tomorrow….I am off to sew clothes for my littles!!
