The Maple Dress & Top is an excellent basic knit garment for any girls' wardrobe. It's loose-fitting, comfortable, and easy to sew. The Maple Top is the perfect combination piece for the Teapot Trousers or layered under the Lindell Cardigan or Acorn Overdress. The knee-length dress features a stylish kangaroo-style pocket. This casual, effortless garment features a rounded neckline and dropped shoulders. The top includes three sleeve lengths: cap, 3/4, and long. 







The Acorn Overdress is a versatile layering garment ideally made from linen or lightweight cotton. This loose-fitting overdress is secured with four ties that can be tied at the side, front, or back depending on your preference. It's an excellent layering pieces over the Maple Dress or Teapot Trousers with Maple Top. It can also be used as an apron for cooking or gardening or even a bathing suit cover up. So many possibilities! 






The relaxed, comfortable fit of the Teapot Trousers allows plenty of room for movement and play. With options for long (trouser) and mid-calf (culotte) length, the Teapot Trouser is suitable for any season.

BurdaStyle Girl's Strap Dress

Wednesday, July 25, 2018

This month's BurdaStyle Influencer post features the Girl's Strap Dress which is part of the recently released Welcome to Greece Collection. This pattern is great for showcasing light, breezy fabrics like this embroidered cotton from my local shop. Since the dress is fully lined, the slight sheerness of the fabric didn't matter. It's so perfect for the hot summer days and Anja now wants to wear this dress everyday!
