Sometimes we would have spring-like warm days in the middle of winter. I love those days...warm and sunny, and no mosquitoes to worry about! And if those days falls on weekend, it is just perfect. Momo and I took advantage of a warm Saturday afternoon and went to the zoo. And Momo knew exactly what she wanted to wear, a new bird print dress I just finished.
The pattern I used is: First Day Dress -MADE.I thought I told myself I was not buying any more new patterns until I try what I already have, but I could not resist the sale she had during the holidays...it was a bargain and I am so glad I bought it :) The dress shape is basic, but I love the clean line and the fit. I cut size 4T width with 5T length bodice and 6T length skirt. I love it when it is easy to adjust the sizes,since size adjustment is always needed for Momo. This dress fits Momo perfectly this way, over a T-shirt I meant for her to wear.
I made the bodice-only lined version. With corduroy fabric, it was not necessary to line the skirt and I thought lined skirt would not be flow-y.
I did make the bottom of the slit a little wide, and I am not sure if I like the look. I would not have done it if the dress was not meant to be worn over a shirt.
Wearing bird print dress made Momo want to see more birds at the zoo. She normally does not care to see birds, but this day she spent most of the time around the birds :)
Linking up to those fun parties.
