Dress for School Pictures

I made this dress for Cora on Sunday for her school pictures. It was insanely easy to make. Does this mean it was actually insanely easy to make or am I getting better at reading and understanding patterns? I actually bought the fabric (Riley Blake's Bloom and Grow) and pattern (Kyla Reversible Dress from Frog Legs and Ponytails) this time last year to make her a dress for her 1st birthday. I am actually glad I waited because she gets around so much better in dresses now

Love this fabric!

I love this fabric as well, but this side bores me. I am thinking about adding a pocket or some other kind of decal. What do you all think?


  1. CUTE!!! A pocket on the 2nd side would definitely look nice. You should make it in a butterfly shape. :-)

  2. A pocket using the contrasting fabric that you made the other side out of would be so cute! You could make it one with holes one both sides like on the front of a hoodie.

    You finished this after going home on Sunday? I finished my free motion quilting too!

  3. Thanks for the comments gals! I'll see how much fabric I have and post pictures when I finish it!

    Yeah Kim for finishing your free motion quilting. Blog it! I want to see how it turned out.

  4. Super cute Sascha! I love that it's reversible...and I like both of the fabric combos. It's such an awesome design, hopefully as she grows she can just keep wearing it as a top if it gets too short.

  5. This is super cute! And I like Linnea's idea of wearing it as a top as she grows. Pockets = adorable. Go for it.

  6. Oooh, I love the idea of the kangaroo pouch! Amazing, Sascha!
