I promised my friend/boss Jordan I would make her this dress way back in October and only just around to finishing it last week as part of my goal to de-clutter my to-do list. It has the same shape as my striped dress, with some modifications for the plaid.
The fabric is a printed cotton jersey that of course came from Fabric Planet. It doesn’t have a whole lot of stretch to it, which is fine for this dress on this tiny lady.
I didn’t use a pattern for this; instead I took her measurements and drew out the shape of the top using those numbers. It’s always a little strange to be sewing something for someone who is so much smaller (or larger) than me because the pieces all feel wrong, and I have to admit that the first try turned into a new shirt for Jason’s niece. In fact with all the extra fabric I have I made a sundress for my niece’s birthday and will probably be making skirts for the collective nieces, although I’m already getting sick of this fabric!
I love how simple this design is and am looking forward to updating it for warmer seasons!
