Who will admit they are an 80’s baby like me and LOVED the Popples?!?!?! I came across this amazing Cotton Lycra knit in a custom knit destash site and POUNCED!
I only got a yard so I wanted to use the fabric in a way that I could stretch it out a long way. Halla has an AMAZING pattern I love using for little girl dresses called the Sunny Day Dress. I love it because it starts at size 0-4 months and goes all the way up to size 12/14 year. Many times I have a customer that wants a dress for both a new itty bitty and their older sibling over 5T. This dress also has so many variations to it. I can add a hood, flutter sleeves, pockets, peter pan collar, or even make it sleeveless. The options are almost endless! It’s a pretty quick sew also after you get the hang of it!
I have been having LOTS of requests for flutter sleeve dresses so I decided to make a 18-24 month flutter sleeve dress to see how it would look and am in love!
I love that it adds just the right amount of Popples to the dress while not over doing it! I paired it with a light rayon spandex from one of the many bundles I’ve bought from So Sew English. If you are not familiar with their bundles get familiar! Their fabric is amazing!
The back is adorable and gives a nice trim of Popple still with the Flutter sleeve. I’m in love and need a girl to put it on ASAP!!!!!!
Stay tuned for more of my sewing adventures!!!
