This is probably my favorite project so far, written for Sewing World magazine. Not only because I love designing children’s clothing but it is worn by a very special model, which meant I also got to go on the shoot at the fabulous Stanbrook Abbey.
I used some gorgeous summer floral cotton prints from Art gallery fabric. I cut the skirt extra wide for full girly swirling potential, which I think all little girls love! The style is quite simple to let the pretty print speak for itself. The back finished with self covered buttons and a large sash. Subsequent projects completed the look with a little 50’s inspired bolero and a confetti bag.
Stanbrook was the perfect setting for the photo shoot, I easily imagined a beautiful wedding taking place in the setting. It was also great to meet the Sewing world team. We had a fabulous day out.
I would love to see your dresses if you made this project. If you have it planned in and need a bit of extra help I would be more than happy to help you make it at one of my classes.
