A cozy little dress

—by Heather

A new line of patterns from Australia has made it’s way in to the store and we’ve been whipping up a few smaples to share our excitement. This is the Little Sprout dress from Make It Perfect. Designed for girls who love their dresses and don’t want to give up wearing them when the weather gets cold.

This dress was made with a hot-pink crossweave for the outside and a super soft and cozy dotted flannel for the lining. Straighforward construction and clear instructions made this a breeze to sew—and fun too. I always love the thrill of making a fully lined garment, especially one that has a hood and pockets!

The sizing is good and generous on this pattern. I made a size 5 and my model is a petit 6-year-old. It fits her but with little room to grow, so it would be perfect on an average sized 5-year-old. Little Sprout is offered in two size ranges: 6 months to 5 years and 6 to 10 years. Currently we only have the smaller size range in the store but will see about getting the larger one if customers want it.

Looks great with leggings and boots!
