Joey Dress Pattern Tour

Little Joey Dress Pattern

I’m participating in Make it Perfect’s pattern tour today, and sharing the Little Joey Dress that I made for Lola.

I loved this design when I first saw it, and knew it would be a great dress to add to Lola’s wardrobe. She’s still super tiny for her age, but has recently been growing too tall for many of her dresses (finally!).

I made the size 1, and it fits her to a T. I thought I may need to add length, but it was perfect on her which was great.

The pattern has a cute kangaroo pocket on the front, but I felt like that may be a little much with this fabric, so I left it off. It also helps it look a bit dressier for church I think. The main fabric is a ponte de roma from Girl Charlee, and was a dream to sew with! I used a navy spandex cotton blend from my stash for the accents.

I liked that the pattern has options for both a regular neck binding, or a cowl neck, which is what I chose.

There are also three sleeve length options, and I went for the half sleeve.

I wish I was more excited for Fall than I am – unfortunately in Seattle it means the rain is pretty much back for good until next July, which is kind of a bummer. But I’ll take any little bits of sunshine I can get, and enjoy the crunchy (read: soggy) leaves and chance to wear boots in the meantime! You can find all the Joey pattern details here!

A Greenpoint Cardigan – Sewing for Kindergarten

Now that I have two little girls, my boys don’t make it onto the blog nearly as often. Partly because I love sewing girly things so much, and partly because my boys are at ages where they wear clothes out quickly, and it’s just not always worth the time to make everyday clothes for them.
