Someone turned 5 today!! There is has been so much excitement all week and quite a lot of cake.
This dress was not really a surprise as Evie had seen the fabric in my room and loved it so I showed her the Skater Dress pattern and got a big thumbs up. There is nothing better then sewing a great pattern using really good quality fabric. These mushrooms came from Crafty Mamas Fabrics and is cotton/elastane which is beautiful to sew and keeps its shape after washing.
This is a fairly simple dress, but it has nice lines, the skirt flares nicely and it has bands on the sleeves.
You sew the neckband on after sewing one shoulder together, but I think next time I'll just do it after I sew both shoulders together
I can see myself sewing a few of these over the next few years.
