I bought this fabric to make the Lotta skirt for myself, but soon after I discovered I was pregnant. I decided to wait until the baby was born. Well, I didn't get to use this fabric for myself. Miss R saw it, gave it a spot on description and requested a pizza dress.
I am not sure if my original plan for this fabric influenced the choice of a pattern for a 'pizza dress' for Miss R. It is... Yep, that's right. It is the Lotta dress! I have used this pattern three times previously (here, here and here). It is very safe to assume I like this pattern ;)
I have been struggling choosing sizes for both of my girls recently. You see, Miss L is growing so fast, which is absolutely normal for a toddler. However for some reason I think that Miss R is growing just as fast. Well, she does not. Miss R's chest measurement puts her in size 4, however I got worried she would grow out of the dress before summer ends and made size 5 width with size 6 length. Go ahead and laugh if you have to, I won't mind :) What are the chances this dress will still fit Miss R next summer?
I am trying to be more disciplined with my fabric purchases and use what I already have. My degree of success varies somewhat haha I did well with this dress though. I had pink voile left after making the Ileana dress for Miss R that matched the pink of the pizza fabric so well! Buttons came from my stash also.
This is such a quick and cute dress to make. I love the small details like the collar and this particular view of the pockets. Combined with the capped sleeves, this is Miss R's favourite version of this dress.
