New Dress / Pinafore



Added these to my Boutique today. The dress/pinafore comes on it's own, but looks really cute over a blouse and as a shorter, above knee style on my IpleHouse KID.

On reflection, I'm not at all sure about the plum flounce on the second one and was wondering if it was just a little too full. Also thought I may try varying the design slightly, by making it shorter and adding a small frill above, rather than on, the hemline.

As always, I'm interested in hearing my readers opinions, so feel free to let me know what you think.

  1. Hi Sandi!
    Both dresses are very beautiful, although in my opinion, the second one looks better as a shorter. In the little girl, it looks like if it's a bit big for her. Anyway, you have done a good job with it ;)

  2. Hello Sandy,
    Absolutely gorgeous. they are lovely. I don't think the flounce is too full, rather the fabric seems a little stiff and it is not hanging as it should...but honestly it is a minor detail because it looks terrific.
    Big hug,

    1. You could be right there Giac, although pre-washed, the fabric used on this frill is not quite as soft as my usual fabrics, possibly because of the polyester content. Thanks for your thoughtful contribution.
