3 Spring Dresses

For my ten year old daughter, who doesn’t like fussy dresses but complimented me many times on these three.


Measuring Up

Organic Red Cotton Jersey, Fabric Scrap

Dress, Boots

Hand-Embroidered Bleeding Heart


The blue and the deep-red stripe were both from Gray’s General Store. The red organic jersey was bought on sale some time ago.

I sew most my knits with a slight zig-zag and a stretch needle. I have a serger, but I prefer to work on a sewing machine. These dresses sewed up rather quickly, given I use my mat and rotary cutter and am an old hand at sewing with knits.

All three dresses were based on a pattern by¬†Chicken Hill, graded up for Phoenix’s tall, lanky frame. At first I thought I’d offer these to clients, but the waist tie requires a rather personalized placement, so I won’t be doing so at this time. However, if you’re sewing up some yourself and want any tips, shoot me a text or email! kelly AT hogaboom DOT org, 3605003287.
