Toddler Dress and Skirt Friday, August 25 2017

It's the middle of winter here in Australia and brrr, it's icy cold. So being cold means long sleeve dresses which of course Laney didn't have any, so that means I headed to the sewing machine!

 

 

I found some great organic fabric from the USA from a place called Organic Cotton Plus. The fabric is a really nice weight and perfect for dresses with the added bonus of being organic. 
I actually pre-washed all my fabrics on this one because I was mixing dark fabric with light coloured fabric and didn't want to risk the colour bleeding later on.

The pattern was one of the patterns from this 'mixed' tape of patterns. It's the first time I had made a pattern from the selection and it was kinda fun and can't wait to try another.

 

 

Laney was being the typical three year old and it took me over a week to convince her to let me take a photo of her in her new dress. I, of course, had to bribe her with a lollypop as a reward and then Joe snuck in for a quick cuddle too.

 

 

I have enough yellow fabric to make her either another top or maybe some cute deer leggings. There is also lots of black fabric left over too, so I'll be making Joe some trousers as well.  

 

 

Two Rectangles Skirt

 

A very easy skirt pattern - just 2 rectangles and she won't stop wearing it! 

 

I had a nice rectangular piece of fabric left over from when I made a dress for Laney. As I was folding it up to put into my stash, I stopped myself because I'll use it rather than stash it.

Trying to think of something easy to make that used it all up, I suddenly remember that I didn't actually need a pattern and taking inspiration from this book, I grabbed folded it in half and whammo - this would make a great skirt! So I grabbed a rectangular piece of jersey ribbing from my stash, sewed the two together and it was finished. 
#makenotstash! 
I showed my daughter who immediately put it on ...and I've struggled to get it back off her ever since!
