Hopscotch dress

Just because the ballpoint needle was in the machine, and this strawberry interlock has been languishing on a shelf, this dress was made!

I initially bought the Hopscotch pattern solely for the skirt. I just couldn’t resist those cleverly folded pockets!

But since I felt like flexing some stretch-sewing muscle, I printed out the dress pattern on a whim and got working.

L actually squealed out loud when she saw the strawberries! This is a size 5 and fits her just right, I think. (She did only just turn five though.)

When I first finished it, I did wonder if it looked too much like a nightgown to wear out of the house! But then I decided that the strawberry fabric had to see the light of day!

She keeps posing like this! Without any direction!

    She is so adorable! And the dress is so cute. I have some pink knit set aside to do a hopscotch shirt for my little girl this fall/winter, it’s a great, simple pattern and of course, my kids prefer to wear comfy knits when they can!

      Thanks, Inder! My girls love their comfy knits, but luckily the little one will still wear wovens. Not so for the older one though…

    I think it looks great šŸ™‚ I wish I could get my hands on some cute knits. They seem so hard to find in Canberra.

      Thanks, Ruth! I got this knit from fabric.com – I don’t have a lot of variety locally too. I’ve also bought from Spotlight.
