Pinky and the Next Dress

Since Pinky is awake and I finished the second dress in record time this morning, I managed to get a picture of her in her latest dress.  Sadly, the dutch girl dress has been quickly abandoned for her new favourite dress.  I knew that would happen.  This dress is pink, has flowers, glitter and ‘drape.’  Although she doesn’t know the word drape, she is in love with any dress that flows and moves and allows her to do the same.

We’ve agreed that ‘dutch girl dress’ will be a Sunday dress 🙂 which makes me happy enough because, quite frankly, I spent too much time fiddling with the details to want it to be quickly destroyed in back yard play.  One of the reasons I’m not perfectionistic about sewing these dresses is that I know my daughter will wear them to threads.  Which is why I’m happy enough to sew them for her in the first place!

The Bodice: Peasant style (which I consider modest)

And last, my favourite, the Dutch Girl Dress:

That face is of a girl being forced to remain in the Dutch girl dress when all she really wants is to be in the Pinky Dress.

      Hi Sarah,

      Here is the pattern, Kwik Sew pattern 3674 I’m not sure if they have it in smaller size but I know Simplicity does. Make Simplicity dresses 1 size smaller than you think from the chart. Unless of course… they fixed that 😉 I’ll have to share Libby’s comment to Karryne later!
