About a month ago, my online friend, An from StraightGrain and I, both released our first pdf patterns. To celebrate the launch of our patterns, we thought it would be fun to swap and create our own versions of each other's dresses...An, the Ruffle Top, and me, her Bubble Dress. As soon as I received the pattern, I ordered some Michael Miller Madrona Road Wild Carrot Blue and waited as patiently as possible for it to arrive.
With An's beautiful photos and easy-to-follow instructions, it was a breeze to sew this dress in less than a couple hours. I love how cleanly finished everything looks, to the point where it could almost be worn inside out and still look gorgeous! It's fully lined (I used some sunny yellow cotton lawn) and has an easy-to-sew button closure in the back. The pattern also includes the option of an adorable peter pan collar and includes sizes 1-6 years.
Who wouldn't make one of these beautiful dresses, right?!
