This is looking to be a summer of dresses for M- they’re easy and she likes them. I had been tempted by all the reversible Roller Skate dresses popping up in the Oliver and S Flickr feed– and felt I had enough distance from my first dress and tunic that I was ready to sew it up again.
The pink side has the button, though I went with a color that would work with either side. I made her an 18-24 month again. I dropped the casing line this time so that it would hit her closer to the waist. I found this pattern a bit wide for her frame and wanted to see how that would work. It’s still a little wide through the shoulder/neck- I’m going to alter the pattern pieces
if when I do this again.
Things are finally starting to green up around here.
Side B- I choose this fabric second. I originally really preferred the pink. But once I got it sewn up and on her, I think I changed my mind.
She doesn’t go anywhere lately without a baby. She was also dead set on chasing geese for most of this picture excursion. Which terrifies me. Because geese terrify me to start with- and they are bigger than her….
I think this is a good option in my search for a go-to woven pattern. But I’m still shopping around.
Anyone have a good everyday woven dress they’ve sewn again and again?
