BurdaStyle Influencer - Girl's Bib Dress

Thursday, June 14, 2018


How exciting to be sharing my first BurdaStyle Influencer post! This is the first of a whole year's worth of BurdaStyle makes. Every month, I'll be sharing something made from the huge selection of kids' patterns. The Girl's Bib Dress (02/2018) was an easy choice because it fits my girl's style perfectly. I made a size 116 and increased the length by a few centimetres (Anja's 120cm tall with a 59 cm chest). We couldn't be happier with the results!
