Sew & Tell - Lisa's Dress and Bloomers
We already know that Lotta Jansdotter is a great textile designer, and we love her simple modern designs, right? I know Lisa does. She made these toddler dress and bloomers for her niece from Lotta's Simple Sewing for Baby. They are adorable! I love the choice of fabrics. Simple and modern. And I have a tunic with the same print too :-) It was a great pattern, but sorry no longer available. You wonder why one dress and two pairs of bloomers? Well, she made the dress reversible with the blue and orange print on the other side. Clever, huh? The only thing we were wondering about the book is the dress size. In the book, the dress looks like it's for a two to three years old. But, the finished size here looks more like size one as a dress. The dress looks so much larger in the photo in the book. Or it's just our eyes? Well, it is cute. Very cute. She will modify the pattern a bit next time, she said. Thank you, Lisa!
