And all of a sudden it's the weekend and another kids clothes week is over - and again I feel like there's so much more I wanted to do! But I think that's one of the cool things about KCW - it gets you sewing and inspired to sew even more. This time around I managed to finish the Avengers geranium dress from my last post, get some pj pants nearly done, and finish one more dress - my first go of the gorgeous desert rose pattern.
I used some cotton-ish fabric I found in the remnant bin last time I was fabric shopping - I'm pretty sure it has some poly in it. It was actually kind of not that nice to work with. I made the 18 month size and it is a pretty good fit, with a bit of room to grow into. Like the Avengers dress I have about 2 inches extra in the hem. It's hard to see in these pics with the busy fabric, but the dress closes with two buttons on the bodice front - so cute!
I have been in love with this pattern for quite a while (check out #desertrosedress in instagram - so many beautiful dresses!) and was certainly not disappointed with the result! I have fabric washed and waited to be cut out for the next already. I actually think it's a good one for special stash fabrics since the square skirt means it is easy to be flexible with length and fullness =)
