Another think I love about all the SisBoom patterns and Carla's Scientific Seamstress patterns is that if you have made one, you can make them all. The patterns are all consistent in the language and method so that each pattern is easier than the one before. The sizing also makes it very easy to accomadate any size. Eleanor is an average 6yr old with regards to height, however she is only 35lbs. I always use Carla's suggestion for chest measurement for size - a 3/4 for Eleanor. Then, because of her great diagrams, I can use the length for a 45" 6yr old and we easily have the perfect fit. Here is the finished product!
*Disclaimer - I was so focused on getting pictures of the dress this morning I totally forgot to pack lunch for Eleanor. To her delight, this meant she got to buy hot lunch, thrilling to her and revolting to me*
I love that this dress looks adorable with a turtleneck, leggings and boots but come spring it will look cute with a t-shirt. In the summer, as a sun dress it will be fabulous!
I made the matching gray felt flower pin and matching hair flower on my embroidery machine, I thought they added some fun to it.
It is hard to tell here but the turtleneck isn't just gray but it is shimmery gray. Hello Target, you speak my child's love language.
Beth...I will totally make myself one to match Eleanor!
