This little dress was the result of last weekend’s visit to Spotlight. It is made using Burda 9703. I bought this pattern last year, thinking dresses for Meg would be a great place to practise my zipper and facing skills. I'm happy with the overall pattern - it's simple yet well put together (unlike the free patterns for girl's dresses I've previously tried).
I think the fabric is very cute however the dress is quite pale and needs a bit of a 'lift'. I think I'll sew a brown ribbon above the pinky strip and try and hunt down two brown heart-shaped buttons to place on the bodice under the straps. Tracking down the buttons may well be the most challenging part to this little project. Despite this, the dress has passed two very important tests:
Test 1: Sitting on concrete - PASS!
Test 2: Jumping really high - PASS!
