I sewed up a cute little dress for Ivy, photographed it, AND now I’m documenting it, all within a week. Craziness. Let’s discuss.
First, the pattern. It’s the Kensington Dress by Hey June Handmade. It is one of my favorite patterns. I’ve made it a few times before (see two dresses HERE and a top HERE) This time, we ventured into the 3/4 size for Ivy. It’s a bit big, but she’s had a growth spurt recently and I’m anticipating more. Hopefully she’ll be able to get a few seasons of wear out of this.
Now the fabric. I’m about to sound like an ad for Jo-Ann, but this isn’t sponsored. I just have been really impressed with their apparel selection, especially the knits. The newest knits are so much more soft, thick, and wash/wear better than what I’ve purchased from them before. At least this particular line is. And the prints are fantastic! It’s the Doodles line, and the selvage say’s “Dot to Dot”, which doesn’t seem very fitting for this print at all. I’ve been calling it “Woodland Creatures”. Ivy’s been calling it “Woodland Cweashues”. Makes it even cuter, huh?
She’s good at that.
