Blues and greens are definitely my favorites, but I do love this orangey color combination, too:
our fiestaware * a little knit dress she wore twice* our wedding dahlias
So last night I made Lila a simple little dress from orange shot cottons. My local fabric store carries the entire color range of Kaffe Fasset’s shot cotton, which is both amazing and completely overwhelming…but mostly just amazing. I can’t get enough of the stuff – I have stacks and stacks of prints but all I want to sew with these days is shot cotton!
The pattern is Leila & Ben’s Sweet Little Dress, which I’ve made countless times before, though never in solids. There are lots of simple peasant dress patterns out there, but I find this one to be pretty much perfect.
I added the gathered pockets from the Oliver + S Jump Rope Dress (view B).
Pattern: Leila & Ben’s Sweet Little Dress, size 3T
Fabric: tangerine and watermelon shot cotton (and an unknown, accidental third color for the pocket binding)
That’s it for today. Back to blue tomorrow!
