I whipped this dress up in one evening, from start to finish. I drafted the pattern directly onto the yard goods (I like to live dangerously) and cannot remember the math I used to draft the pieces. Despite the late hour, the impromptu nature of the drafting and my highly-caffeinated state at the time, it came out absolutely perfectly. My 4yo daughter adores it, and I am thrilled with it.
Printed fine-wale cord with a brown and turquoise polka dot print cotton lining and white cord piping at the drop waist. Single button loop closure at the back.
