No close ups of the dress (and smartphone pics) and I learned my lesson about counting on a toddler for holding still for a half second or cooperating when I'd like to do her hair...
Stella picked out the cupcake button :)
Only modification was only lining the bodice of the dress to keep it lightweight.
Curious about the dirt patch Stella was running around in? Our future firepit! We bought the supplies today and we're hoping to get it done next week. So excited for backyard s'mores!
More about the pattern:
Pattern: Heidi & Finn Colorblock Dress
Sizing: I sewed a 3T in a 4T length knowing it would be a bit big (room to grow!) and it fit fairly well. The pattern didn't have a sizing chart, just finished garment sizes, but I messaged through etsy and got a quick response from the pattern makers.
Material used: Kona solid for shoulders and jersey blend knit from Joann's that had been in the stash for awhile.
Notions needed: A button.
Appropriately rated: Yes. A beginner pattern, although more markings on the pattern would be appreciated.
Time spent: Only a few hours including cutting out.
Comments: This was the first Heidi & Finn pattern I've sewn and I was impressed. She has a lot of patterns, and I'm looking forward to making the jacket pattern I also bought. The only grievances I had were that the pattern lacked any notches that would have been helpful when putting the dress together, and I couldn't figure out the middle back seam (steps 38-39) so I just sewed two seams instead of 1 and it worked fine. I think I'll use this pattern again and I would recommend it.
