KCWC 2012: the girl
Mira decided on the following dress and fabric Wednesday after looking through a few books and choosing fabric from a few stashed options. I cut the pattern and fabric Wednesday night and sewed the dress both Friday and Saturday.
pattern: White Cotton Sundress from Carefree Clothes for Girls
fabric: two vintage prints from my Grandmother’s collection. She had given both prints to me awhile back to make something for Mira.
the sewing: I have sewn a few garments for Mira from this book and have been happy with the final results. I do think there pattern sizes run slightly large, which I sometimes remember. I didn’t this time so the dress is just a wee bit big. She told me that she would grow into it though. I added the ruffled shoulder from the Quilted Bodice Dress, but I cut them on the fold so there are no raw edges. I also added some crazy big pockets. Mira really wanted pockets big enough to fill and now she has them.
