Eep!! It's day 3 of the Willow & Co pattern week on this here blog :) And I really can't choose favorites from all of these this week, but if I did....

The Persimmon Sundress - A Willow & Co Pattern

I mean, what's not to love?? It's girly, it's twirly, it's GREEN, and there's stripes involved. A combo of mine and my girl's favorite things.

Oh, and, psst. Look who's on the pattern cover. ;)

Once again Hayley from the Mouse House has completely outdone herself with not one, but TWO pattern contributions to the Wanderlust Collection. I'll be reviewing the shorts pattern tomorrow, and I love it just as much as the dress!


As you can see in the photo above, there are several options included in the sundress pattern, including a tunic length. All the options and possible combinations are just as cute as can be.

One of my fave options is the patch pocket with a flap. Seriously. How cute is it!? It's also super handy for holding bribes Smarties. The buttons I chose to use just so happen to look pretty much EXACTLY like a Smartie, which thrilled both of my kids to pieces. They've been calling them O's "Smartie Buttons".

The dress features 6 pleats, front and back (12 total), which gives it a lovely full A-line shape. There is also a center piece, front and back, as well as separate ruffles along the bottom, which give HUGE opportunity for color and pattern blocking.

For this dress though, I chose to keep things simple and used all the same fabric except for the shoulder ties and I love, love, love this look too.

I love the fullness of the dress, but at the same time it is very light and airy. Just the way a sundress should be.

This girl has started to twirl for every photo shoot we do. It's become a "thing". I love it.

And there is the perfect amount of twirl in this dress.
