The sudden realisation that Kid's Clothes Week started yesterday resulted in the making of this simple little peasant tunic/dress.
This little dress has been on my sewing ‘to do’ for a while. It was the reason I bought the beautiful Liberty of London fabric (inspired in part by the lovely yet simple floral tops and tunics that the gorgeous Poet often wears.)
I could have added pockets, cinched the waist or added other details; but I preferred to keep it simple and flowy – letting the beautiful fabric take centre stage and I only added the trim at the bottom to give it extra length, on the the hope that Isabelle can wear it in the Winter too, with tights and merino underneath.
I took the photos this morning and the overcast day we are experiencing just do not do the fabric justice, it is so much nicer in real life! But I guess you’ll have to take my word for it!
The pattern I used was once again this free pattern and tutorial, and once again I made the 4/6 size, but I narrowed it slightly.
I can’t promise that I’ll make quite as much as I did last KCW, but I have got a couple of things planned, so we’ll see…
