Madeline Dress in Liberty Hello Kitty

 One fabric I knew I had to find in Japan was Hello Kitty Liberty lawn. Thanks to a little help from Instagram I found some at a shop called Pakira in the Nippori fabric are of Tokyo. I forgot to take a photo of the front of the shop, but it is near the start of the street as you come from the station on the left, on a corner. It is full of Liberty and some other fabrics and there were a few rolls of Hello Kitty. Olive chose this one.
I used the Madeline Dress pattern by Peach Patterns. I have made this for Olive every summer and I still love it. It is so quick to sew and all the pieces go together perfectly. It's already been worn twice so I think the search for the fabric was worth it.
