I've had this corduroy owl fabric in my stash for quite some time now (since Jan 2012!); he's been laying around not knowing what I should make him into. In the meantime, Miss K has outgrown her adorable kitty tiered dress here. Kids grow so darn fast!
I picked up the navy corduroy at Hancock's during their big blowout sale back here because I knew exactly what to do with the owl fabric at that moment. 1 yard owl fabric; 1.5 yards navy fabric. Total cost of fabric: $17.92 (and I still have a bit of both left over)
(we are still remodeling this room! lol)
Yes, I know. Yet another dress in the Simplicity sewing pattern 2377: Childs Dresses size A (3-4-5-6-7-8)
This is one of my treasured patterns and it is so easy and fun to make. I love each dress it produces and Miss K goes crazy for the comfy-ness of them. Dad loves that they are age appropriate (so hard to find these days) and long enough. I think at this point, with this being my 4th time making this pattern, I could almost do it in my sleep! It was great working with the corduroy too.
Perfect solution to 3 problems: Kitty dress outgrown, owl fabric needed a project, lack of fall dresses in Miss K's wardrobe.
Ah..... Corduroy! I love it's softness; the owl fabric is like butter! Let's hope Miss K doesn't outgrow this one too fast!
Made from Simplicity sewing pattern 2377: Childs Dresses size A (3-4-5-6-7-8)
modification: no ties attached, no bow on front.
I followed every step of the pattern otherwise. I really love doing these sleeves. They always turn out perfect and they aren't a hassle like other sleeves.
