So here we are on day 4 of Kids Clothes Week and so far all I've sewn are different versions of the same simple dress. I could say that I'm getting bored sewing this way this week, but that would be a lie. I'm actually loving the simplicity of it all. Getting to know a sewing pattern and playing with it is fun!! It's also nice to sew something that I know will fit and be loved. So far this girl loves each and every one of her animal dresses --and she's a fickle pickle when it comes to getting dressed, so that's saying something!
So what's different about this dress? The front is a patchwork of different fabrics, that's what! To construct it I used a largish scrap of the bear print, and flanked it with a yellow crosshatch print (leftover from the backing of our boy's Scout Quilt). Now I want to make more patchwork dresses using wonky log cabin quilt squares. There are just so many ways to make this same simple dress... Somebody stop me!!
