Somehow my girl is starting her second year of preschool this year. She’s grown a ton in the last year. She’s even started sounding out words this summer and it’s so fun to see her blossoming. She gets so proud of herself and I love to see her learning. She’s not only growing with her reading, but she’s also growing taller too. Dresses have always been her thing, so it was only fitting to make her a dress for back to school this year.
I scoured through my pattern stash only to tumble upon the gorgeous Adelyn from Simple Life Patterns. It has several sleeve lengths, a cute scoop back with an optional tie, and two different styles of skirt (circle and gathered).
After looking at all of the options, I just had to go with the flutter sleeves. I knew it would add such a feminine, and pretty look. The back tie also added such a fun detail to this beautiful dress. I knew I would have to do the circle skirt, because she just loves to twirl.
Raspberry Creek Fabrics has the cutest alphabet double brushed polyester fabric that was just perfect for her dress. I paired it with another one of their CLUB print double brushed polyester fabrics to went together so well with coordinating colors. The finished dress just couldn’t have been more perfect!
