A New Dress

I found some great patterns on Etsy. As a mostly beginner sewer, I am always trying to learn new skills. Yesterday I decided to step out of my comfort zone of Pillow Case Dresses and try something with more structure. I love this patten from heidiandfinn. It was super easy to follow and I received the PDF with in several hours of ordering. Before I go any further, here is the dress.

As you can see, I had some leftover purple corduroy from the purse. Still have some leftover. This really was an easy to follow pattern/tutorial. I managed to complete it in under 3 hours, except for the button. I really wanted a fabric covered button, so I had to make a run to Hobby Lobby for the supplies. I love how it turned out, even if there are a few mistakes. 

The only real issue I have is the sizing. It goes from 12 months to 2T. I wish there was an 18 month option. I ended up making the 12 month. It fits my daughter very well, but it is a bit short. I could easily adjust my pattern in the future. I think this will still look good with a pair of black leggings.

Looking forward to making another one of these soon!
