This was my second attempt at my "Spring Dress" pattern inspired by the Peplum Bubble Dress at Straightgrain. Alot more successful than my last for two reasons...
Firstly, it is fitted to her little body exactly - to the point I was worried it might not fit her after she had eaten Christmas lunch! Because I tapered it into her waist, I have to pull it up quite firmly to get it over her hips, so next time I will have to put in a zipper. I raised the waist-line and shortened the bubble skirt. I also increased the fabric from twice to three times her width so there were alot more gathers.
Secondly...the fabric choice! For a two year old, the bright fun colours were perfect!!! As soon as I saw the Prints Charming fabric at Spotlight, I knew it would make the perfect dress for her. She wore it two days in a row so that says something :)
