Echino's Buck fabric must be the funniest fabric to be made recently, and it looked perfect for a fun little dress. Even Mr. StraightGrain, who is notoriously indifferent about fabric, spontaneously said he loved it. Champagne, please! I bought it over at Miss Matatabi's, and combined it with grey linen (Wrinkles? Where??)
Norah really likes the dress (It has pockets! POCKETS!), but what I see most is room for improvement for a next version. I used the 2/3 year pattern for Norah (who just turned three) but the neckline and shoulders are too wide for her tiny frame. Next time I'll also have to widen the bottom of the dress, as it is too much of 'tube' in this version.
If anyone else is planning to make the dress, I can really recommend this extra tutorial on Figgy's wonderful blog, which helps you through the most difficult steps in the instructions (the pockets).
Next projects: Rae's Geranium dress, and Clever Charlotte's Olive dress.
