off-set pocket dress



It's been such a long time since I sewed... but the 6 year old wanted a new dress and what could I say?



It was kind of fun. I didn't use a pattern (which if you look closely - or even not so closely - you can tell). I've had that off-set pocket thought in my sketchbook for awhile now. I might make another one with long sleeves and a hopefully more successful neck (there is a reason she is wearing that scarf!). Or I might not.





She's really happy to be posing for the camera instead of eating her english muffins before school.

Oh so sweet. How my daughter loves pockets! Did you mention what the fabric is? Hmmm, I think it time to check out my sewing machine again. It has laid quiet too long.

Very cute! I love that you had her wear a scarf to hide a mistake. I just may have to try that trick sometime!

I love the idea of an off-set pocket. I think it embodies the idea that imperfection can be beautiful.
