Discovering Lu’s wardrobe deficiency conveniently coincided with the Kids Clothes Week Challenge, so I decided to sew each day this week. Specifically, I’m planning on making a new dress every day this week. Both Lu and Bird only really wear dresses and skirts. The closest they get to pant territory is leggings… under a dress or skirt. With that in mind I’ve planned dresses with long sleeves (mostly) and hardy fabrics.
This dress is from Ottobre Issue Winter 2010. It is ‘Snow Flakes’ style #7 in a size 86. I really like the pattern because it has the shape and comfort of a tiered dress with more structure than the raglan seaming typical of tiered dresses--set in sleeves, smooth neckline, and back buttons.
