Considering the pink explosion that was my Slow and Steady Dress, I gave myself a little freedom with this challenge to let a little lavender slip into the palette. Still even with the lavendar, brown and coral, this dress passes the pink test: Does my daughter like the dress? Yes, then it’s pink enough.
When I bought this fabric last weekend in St. Paul, I knew that it would end up as a wiggle dress. The yardage was minimal and the texture would lend itself to a close-fitting little number. I don’t know how, but this dress only ended up requiring about 1 3/4 yards of 44" wide fabric. Having a pattern in my stash that is a such a small yardage wonder is always a good thing.
