Oh deer! Let’s just get that joke out of the way, shall we? Today I’m sharing this fun dress I made for Lola using our Polly Peasant Dress & Blouse pattern.
First, we need to talk about the fabric (!!!). Is it fantastic, or what?! It comes in a panel, with one half the large deer print and one half the small deer print. I have to thank my deer (couldn’t resist one more joke… I’ll stop now… maybe…) friend An for helping me get my hands on it. It’s from Bambiblauw, and you can find it here (the website is not in English, just FYI).
I made Lola a size 2 with size 3 length, which should fit her for awhile. She measures at a size 18-24m for chest and 2 height, but I really didn’t want her to grow out of it too quickly, and you can see that there’s plenty of room to grow.
For the sleeves, I left the elastic off, and cut them to have a cute little row of deer on each sleeve.
The fabric is fairly lightweight but still great quality, so I think this will be a great dress for Lola to wear this summer.
Would you believe this is still our most popular pattern, even after 2.5 years? Over last few months I’ve made one for a gift and one for Hattie, and it was fun to finally make this one for Lola. You know I can’t resist a quick and easy sew :).
