KCW Spring 2015 - Unicorn Dress

So you know when you finish an item and before it's even pressed and worn you have ideas about how to make it well...not better, but different? Well that happened while I was sewing my girl's elephant dress big time. So though I had other plans for KCW this week, I ended up making two more simple raglan shift dresses, each slightly different from the other.  

This dress is two sizes larger than the elephant version, and I added two rows of shirring at the empire waist with elastic thread in my bobbin. Sewing with elastic thread is magic for children's clothing. If you've never tried it, and want to, then check out this tutorial.  Pure genius. 

Pattern: Whole Grain Baby Raglan Shift Dress in size 4 (see my notes on this pattern in yesterday's post)

Fabric: Heather Ross Far Far Away 2 Unicorns in blue for body, and Snails in orange for sleeves

And stay tuned - the third raglan dress will be here on the blog tomorrow!
