I can’t believe how fast this little mischief has grown. She may have just turned big (that would be three to the rest of us), but she will forever be my baby.
As is my custom, I made her a little birthday dress, Simplicity 1435. This year I had my practical hat on and I made her a little Winter dress. The pattern is a TNT for her now. I’ve made it for her twice before (here and here). She seems to love this style a lot.
For her Winter version of this dress I used wool jersey. I purchased it online without a swatch, and I’m pretty disappointed in the quality. The colours are vibrant, but it’s too rough to sit against the skin. My solution was to line the bodice and sleeves completely with soft modal. The soft lining makes it wearable, and the outer wool makes it snuggly warm. I think the combination of colours gives the dress a real vintage feel.
