Here is the dress I hoped to make it to be Momo's Easter dress, but that did not happen...
A few months ago I was browsing I think was Zulily, and sew a pretty yoke dress with flowers in front and a bow in the back. I loved how flow-y and feminine it looked. What I did not like was the color, it was a nice dark color, but just not what I wanted for spring/Easter.
I thought a simple A-line dress with yoke should not be too hard to sew, since I have made one similar design here before. But that dress fit was not right for Momo, so I looked for another yoke dress pattern to try.
The pattern I used this time is: Clover Kids Dress (Japanese site)
The pattern is for size 100cm, which is just Momo's height. But it turned out a little too big on her. The arm holes are wider than I would like. Probably not the pattern's issue though, almost always things are too big for my daughter. I widened my skirt pieces a little bit to add more gathers, but the yoke pieces and the armholes are as-is from the pattern.
Lately the first thing Momo asks when she sees a new dress or skirt is, "Does it spin???" She loves the big skirts that twirl. Apparently, this A-line dress was not twirl-y enough for her, she told me she did not like the dress :( Very disappointing, because I think an A-line dress on a little girl is very cute...and I was planning on making more. I am hoping her "twirl-y dress fever" will be over soon...
Linking up to those fun parties.
