The Sally Dress.
Pattern by Very Shannon, Fabric from etsy.
The fabric is a rayon challis and like butta.
I made this for Emily after finding a really super cute one from H&M that is black with kitty heads all over it and it instantly reminded me of my youth. When working at Yardage City starting in '92, I sewed so many of these for myself. I had one with sunflowers all over it, paint splatter, hats, etc. I LOVED them. I would wear them with Docs or tights and flats. So when I saw this one at H&M I had to get it and make her some more! The Sally pattern was the closest pattern I could find without going to Joanns and looking at the pattern books.
*it's about 90 degrees out and i made her put the sweater, tights and boots on to model this. Is that mean?
The modifications I made are this:
I omitted the huge pockets on the sides and added in-seam pockets.
I added a key-hole opening in the back only because the H&M one had it.
I didn't line it or use facing but instead used bias tape made from the same fabric.
Emily is 9 and has a chest of about 23" so I made a 5t. I probably should have made one size bigger but I didn't want it so huge the neck was gaping or it looked messy.
I also shortened the sleeves quite a bit. Those things were big and boxy! Like a guys t-shirt sleeve.
I think that's all I modified...
Isn't this fabric the cutest???? Why can't I ever find rayon like this? I had to get it from a seller in Hong Kong. I bought this many many months ago and just finally got to it but Target has a whole line of clothing for women made from the print!
