little deers spring dress!

September 22, 2011

I am excited to have made this dress for Issie and to now put this lovely spring piece into my little deers shop.

I fell in love with this pattern (Simplicity 2909) when I saw it on Sew Tessuti blog a few weeks ago.  I eagerly went down to Spotlight to find the pattern and get started.  To my disappointment, the pattern was out of print!  Why would they stop printing such a cute design??  I searched online for almost an hour and finally found it on ebay... Yay!

The dress features a sweet bib with simple lace and navy ric rac trim.  This trim also frames the pockets and hem.  The sleeves hang delicately over the shoulder.  The back features an elasticated piece to allow room for growth and a little tie.  The dress is available in sizes 1-5 (made to order) and you can buy them in my little deers shop!!  The design will also be available in a shirt style - which is simply a shorter version (still with pockets and hem trim).

I am just finishing off another one now for Juliette in the red floral below, which I will post in my shop soon.  I will also make the dress in the cottage garden colourway pictured.  The fabrics are all my Denyse Schmidt and are super sweet and perfectly feminine - I love them all!
