The fabric is by Alexander Henry, and I lined the bodice in just a blue broadcloth because I wanted that pop of colour. The Emerson Dress has several options for the front, but instead of ruffles and (gasp!) pompoms I made some piping in the same blue. I really want to do pompoms next though!
There are also options for sweet flutter sleeves, but I opted to keep them off because I knew the fabric was pretty busy enough and with the contrast piping I just didn't want it to be TOO much ya know? I stitched up the 2T size but the length was the 18month I think. Maybe it was the 18month with the 12month length lol. Either way I still would make the skirt shorter again just because I prefer little girl dresses being above the knee. It's just my thing! I'm just not really a fan of longer skirts but it's something that is so easy to adjust!
Construction was a total breeze. It was straightforward and just flowed so easily. The diagrams are clear and very professional and it was just one of those dresses you don't have to overthink with what you're doing to get it to come out right. I know black is supposed to be one of those colours you don't put on kids and it is quite severe on Edison's glow-in-the-dark whitest-white skin, but I love it. Black rules ^_^
She spent most of the time collecting rocks. Next dress might need pockets for her to carry her stash in!
