Dress for Adele

I'm really enjoying fast sewing projects at the  moment. This dress was made last night for Adele. For some reason, even though I stayed up very, very late the night before making bonnets, I still found myself at the machine last night.
This simple square yoke dress is half vintage pattern, half fudged up by me. The good thing about sewing so many little dresses for little ones, is that you can just eyeball different elements of a design.
The top fabric is pink honeycomb kei fabric, one of my all time favourite pink fabrics and the bottom is some quilting cotton from Anthology fabric, which was initially purchased to make into a quilt for the boys, but doesn't look quite right. One big vintage button closes the yoke.

I love feeling like I've achieved something and I am working through some of the stash which is even better. I'm sure more fast and simple sewing will follow....


  1. That is so adorable. I need to sew for my 2 year old.

  2. The dress and gal are adorable. I seriously don't know how you fit everything in. I've struggled to finish two pairs of Sandbox pants in a week and all my girls have been at school for 50% of the time.

  3. Super cute little dress and Adele is so adorable too

  4. Love it - I need to make more up... it's very cute, and so's Adele.
