The Persimmon Sundress - A Willow & Co Pattern
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....
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.
We both just absolutely love this dress, I can't wait for some real summer weather to wear it all the time!
