At first I wanted the dress to be very simple and without any other colours or prints being added. I thought that the pink and white print was enough to make the dress look fine.
But when I started making the neckline, I had a sudden urge to add something wild to it. I really like what happens when different patterns are put together.
So the orange bias tape with dots was a perfect choice. I love pink and orange together!
The bias tape called out for more dots on orange, and I had to make 2 fabric covered buttons for the front of the neckline...
And that was it!
I really like the A-line shape which the dress has. I can see it as a dress, but also as a tunic with trousers under. I made a size 6 years - due to the shape I think that it will be wonderful for playing and running. Freedom to move is so important in a piece of clothes, if you ask me....no matter whether it is a pair of trousers, a dress or a skirt.
