junie dressJuly 17, 2017 / bygail / Categories : Feeds
Oh hi I made a dress, you wanna see? Obviously I don’t keep up this space anymore, but I took some photos of this dress so I’m tossing it up here. I just kind of miss having everything I’ve made cataloged in one place. And having non iPhone photos of my children.
This is the Junie Dress by Brownie Goose patterns. It was my first time trying a pattern from Brownie Goose – no complaints, it all came together nicely. The bodice and skirt are separate in case you want to get creative with fabric, and there’s an option for a fuller skirt, which I used. I think I cut this dress out last July – it’s a size 6 with the bodice and skirt lengthened to a 7. I had to scrap the one-inch hem for a tiny one to save some length, but thankfully it fits eight year old Lila just about right.
It’s a simple little dress, but the bodice crosses over and ties in the back, which is what drew me to the pattern in the first place.
For awhile I was missing little girl sewing, but I’m feeling more motivated to sew for Lila lately. She still happily wears what I make and loves wearing dresses, so I’m always on the lookout for patterns that are fitting for girls her age – she’s outgrown of a lot of my old patterns, both in size and style. I think this one suits older girls as well as the younger set. Rachel at Stitched Together is a great source of inspiration for more grown-up patterns (and so much more).
The chambray is my regular old Kaufman variety, lightweight with a nice drape, still a favorite. And for the binding I used some long-saved pre-made Nani Iro bias tape from Jones & Vandermeer. There was just enough left to tack the bow to the front – another option included in the pattern.
I hope that front tooth takes its time coming in.
