Sweet Finale


OK, I promise this is the last on this little dress. Once again, pattern Y1111 from Young Image Magazine, from their first issue, Summer 2011.

Snug. (and that’s the zipper side! ๐Ÿ™‚ )

I made the size 128, as per Syo’s chest measurement, however I did lose a small amount of width due to taking slightly larger seam-allowances on the skirt gores. I don’t imagine it was more than one or two centimetres around the whole dress, though, so the dress is very close fitting to begin with. We can just barely get it zipped up around Syo.

Unfortunately, my old camera didn’t want to focus on anything more than a foot away.

Which, of course, she thinks is absolutely perfect.

Side view

I also lengthened the skirt by about 4 cm. It now comes to just below her knees. If I had been actually trying to fit it to her, a small swayback adjustment would’ve been in order. Or, y’know, a bit more ease for that bottom.



The hem.

Ok, I am now officially completely out of things to say about this dress. Definitely time for a dress for me.

  2. Very cute!

    What dress are you thinking of for you?

  3. Wow, that dress looks even better on! A little sweet for Syo maybe, but very pretty. And yes, now it’s time to do some mama sewing!

  4. It’s adorable- but don’t tell her I said that- say something more cool. I’m glad she likes it.

  5. She’s adorable and so is the dress!

  6. Very sweet! Yes, yes! A dress for you!

  7. So cute! And I’m definitely excited to see something new for you. Because sewing for kids is cute, but I like to see stuff that other people are making for themselves so that I don’t feel like a completely selfish witch over here. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  8. Definitely twee! oops…does she not like the word?
