I just adore these dresses I made for my girls! The pattern is from the most recent issue of Ottobre design.
For the denim dress, I did topstitching with two threads through the needle, hot pink and red. I love the emphasis this gives to the topstitching, and the color combo is just plain fun! I used large pink buttons on the pockets and sewed them on with red thread.
The corduroy dress is cute, too. But, it taught me an important lesson. When sewing a complicated pattern, with lots of pieces and topstitching, patterned fabric is not the best. All the work I did sort of blends into the bold heart print. The kids love it anyway, though, and that’s what counts.
