Pleated Floral Dress

This past Easter I wanted to make my daughter her Easter dress. I knew exactly how I wanted the dress to be basic bodice and box pleat skirt. I don't normally buy pdf patterns but I was short on time and the design was already available. I decided to purchase from Mingo & Grace the pdf pattern is called Blake.

Floral Gray Knit Dress

 Hi guys, just stopping by to share with you my latest make. I love seeing my daughter in comfy knit dresses. I stumbled across this gorgeous gray floral fabric and I knew I had to make her a knit dress. I went a head a drafted a basic bodice and for the skirt it would be a gathered rectangle. I measured her waist and multiplied it by two to get a beautiful gathered. Both the neckline and the armholes are bias bind with the same fabric. This was a fast and easy dress to make. Best of all she loves pull over dresses that are comfy yet stylish.

Here she is modeling her latest.
She is a free spirited and this dress lets her hop, twirl, and even run!

My little bunny!
