The little dress that could

If you’re looking for a girl’s dress pattern that’ll last a little longer than your average make, how’s this for picture proof? Five years on and Stella (above) is still wearing (and loving) the dress that Colette made for her back in 2010.

I also made E the same pattern back in 2011 and it continues to be one of her summer favourites after four years of very solid wear. 

As you’ll read in the original blog posts, Colette and I used different methods for sewing the straps and both work brilliantly to accomodate growing children.
