Loulou's springtime dress

Added May 17, 2010

Brugge, Belgium






I made this dress for my daughter’s spring-party, she saw a similar red checkered dress in a boutique. But she wanted a yellow dress… For this dress I used the same pattern as the “girafe” dress, but here I made
it with pleats, I taught it looked nice to use the fabricpattern to create the pleats. I also added a collar from another blouse pattern, and aded other details like longer sleeves with a split and emboidery with rainbow mettalic yarn.

Material Notes

Cotton checkered fabric, white cotton lining.

    oh my this is fantastic!! Love it all…those pleats that go with the check, the bias use of check in the yoke, the sparkle in the top stitch…..simple things that all amount to a very fine dress indeed…..lucky daughter you have there. BTW also love you wallpaper :)

    Very cute dress, I’d wear it in my size. Your daughter’s character is shining through. Love the entire outfit and her expression.
