tea party sundress


Tea Party Sundress in My Folklore-

I have wanted to make this dress for a long time and fabric choices were what was holding me back. I finally settled on one.

My Folklore
is a favorite line of mine and I went with two patterns in the same colorway mixed with a deep cherry red.

The pattern is written very well and the different options you can do with the dress make it very versatile.

The fact that the dress patterns come with a paper doll with coordinating outfit is the icing on the cake. There are bloomers to match.

ooohhhh, so cute. very valentine appropriate also. i didn't know the patterns came with matching doll patterns. good to know. my daughter loves when i sew for her doll with extra fabric from something i have made here.

the dress is adorable. i love the fabric. did you use extra fabric for those buttons, so cute. and oh how i love the sweet chubbiness of babies in their first years. they're just so huggable.
