More Ottobre Kids Design Dresses 04/2014 Issue

Hello everyone,

I have made more dresses from Ottobre Design Kids 04/2014 issue. It’s the sweater dress here. ottobre
This will be the third time I have made this pattern, <link here for earlier makes>.

I used a lovely soft fleece backed yellow knit fabric. This is something I picked up from a car boot sale in Essex last year. I actually finished these in September but they are too big so they have been put aside for next year. I traced the size that corresponded with 4yrs in error – I only realised my mistake after tracing most of the pattern pieces so I just carried on. Surely if its big they can grow into it – better too big than too small I think :-).

I have some shocking pink cuffing/ribbing which I used as a contrast. Though these are summer/spring colours, the weight of the fabric is perfect for colder weather. I used the overlocker for all the construction except for topstitching.

Having made this same pattern SIX times now means it’s a super fast make and they were done in one sitting.

It is very difficult to photograph little children! They were not interested at all in posing for pictures so these were the best I could get to show what’s what with them.

Funtioning pockets – they are lined with some scrap minions fabric (forgot to get pictures..)

I am quite pleased with how these turned out and no doubt they will be workhorses just like the other ones – they still wear those ones!

Thanks for stopping by, until next time, Happy sewing!

    1. Mmm, now that you point it out – its true they arent overly huge but I guess I am so used to making things that are spot on with size for them. The girls seem to be going through a growth spurt right now so I expect I will be getting these dresses out sooner rather than later. the joys of sewing for very young ones 🙂
