This dress is made from Batik which I thought would be cool in the summer, the pattern is 142 from Burda 04/2011. It went together relatively quickly and looks ok. For Maddy’s trousers I made age 6 and lengthened the pattern although she is 8 because she’s so slim. I risked a larger size for the dress and wouldn’t do that again as it is too big. There is a lot of fabric in the front of the dress which although it’s a pretty design I’m not a huge fan – or maybe I’m just not used to seeing her in a dress.
30 select jacket and coat patterns are now marked down to $3.99.
