Those of you following along in with PR&P know this week’s challenge was a remix of Cottage Mama’s Party Dress. While we had set a goal to participate in each weeks sew along, let’s just say this dress is still a WIP (work in progress). The bodice came out just as envisioned, but the skirt is currently a hot mess. And for some reason my toddler really, really, REALLY hates it. Does anyone else have a child randomly revolt against clothing? I’m not sure what is so offensive about a cotton dress, but you would think I had lit it on fire- she was not having it.
I needed a pick me up. For some reason my son has no hats that fit him. His sister has a dozen. I upcycled a sweater into this hat for him, but this works pattern would work great for a little girl too.
This easy little hood pattern is found in Oliver + S Little Things to Sew. I made a small designed for 12M-3T. My material had more give than what she recommends, but my 3 yr. old has an average to large sized head and there is plenty of room. If you have a 2 and under you may want to consider going with the extra small.
I started with a medium man’s sweater. I like to start with a large, but this was exactly the color palette I wanted so I decided to risk it.
Instead of ribbon for the ties I cut 1/4″ stripes of flannel and braided them together.
