Party Dress

After the success of the Peter Pan collar dress in my previous post, I decided to make it again!...this time without the collar and made just in time to wear to a cousin's birthday party (and I mean literally an hour before we left!) I used a remnant fabric with cute bunnies hiding amongst bold polka dots..under half a metre of it, but just enough to be eked out into a toddler size dress...albeit a bit shorter than the previous version. The slightly heavier weight of this fabric worked well to make the gathers in the bodice stand a bit more proudly, with extra body.
So far, this version has been inaugurated at two parties over the weekend and withstood tunnel crawling, bubble chasing, birthday cake and a bit of English rain! And the fabric camouflages the grass stains brilliantly ;)
And if you love a pattern that much, why not make it a third time ! This time sleeveless and with a bit of pretty ribbon trim.
