This dress turned out as sweet as the sketch used to ask for testers! Unfortunately The Daughter was not interested in wearing the bolero that I made to go with it. 😫 But that is the way it goes when the mini humans are learning about self and asserting their selves.
As I am sewing more and acquiring more fabrics, I am starting to lose track of the brands and locations each came from. And so I don’t remember whom or where the stripes came from. *All the sads* Michael Miller Fabrics put out the skirt fabric in the name Sweet Treats but alas, I can’t remember where I obtain it either. And Google was not my friend on this one either.
Pickled Toes Patterns made The Daughter’s day with this one. She asked for an “all the way to the floor dress” so I was able to give it to her with Pickle Tink dress. This pattern is for every season with every length; top to floor. The empire waist is my favorite and when paired with the bolero, *sigh* it is PERFECT!!!! One day, I will get the bolero pictures uploaded too.
The sleeveless is going to make this dress a go-to for the Texas summer and the back is just so simple it is an art-form of its own. I love how wonderfully it came together with the Kam snaps. Although, I want to give it a try with a zipper at some point very soon. This pattern with the classic lines makes it quintessential for all, premie to 12 years old. ❤ ❤ ❤ And the best for The Daughter was the pockets because who doesn’t like some pockets. 😀 Out of this world, Pickled Toes Patterns!
