Simplicity 1473 Girls Hooded Dresses

My greatest sewing pleasure is sewing for my little people – but sewing for the twinks is my joy. I love choosing contrasting fabrics to make them garments that are the same but different. I have a soft spot for Simplicity 1473 as it was one of the first garments I made for my son. The top I made then in 2014 is still around and my twins wear it now  <link here>. Here is the pattern cover.1473

I am proud of these makes because the fabric was not a stasher (stasher is long term resident of the stash). I made them within 1 month of buying the fabric.

I bought the fabric from B&M Fabrics. It’s a fleece backed sweater fabric that is very warm. It washes really well. When I took these pictures the dresses had been washed several times already but the colour is still good.


I have cut out another pair of these dresses already waiting to be sewn up. The new owners love their dresses :-).

Thanks for stopping by, until next time, happy sewing,

Peace and love,

  1. I so wish I’d sewn for my girls when they were little but I was going through a different phase of interests at the time and now it’s too late – one sews for herself and the other isn’t really interested in clothes per se. Love that front pocket feature which it looks as if they make the most of.

    1. Thanks Theresa! Oddly enough I am better at keeping my knitting under control though I have read of knitters who have Stash Beyond Life Expectancy which made me laugh so much 🙂 Because my fabric stash probably falls under that category!
