I don’t usually sew a whole garment in a novelty print, but for some reason when I was going through my fabric to find something to make a dress in, this Michael Miller print called to me for a summer play dress. She definitely gets lots of compliments when she wears it!
I’ve had this pattern for ages, but never made it, and realised that my version doesn’t go higher than size 3. So I thought I better make it before Miss M gets too big. The centre panel is some old organic Cloud 9 I bought, and I found it a little too thin and delicate – it showed pin marks and didn’t pleat as nicely as I’d hoped. But if I have time before Miss M gets too big, I may make another version of this dress in wool for winter.
