The Soleil Dress is a sleeveless knit dress with a slightly gathered skirt and large front pockets . The pattern also comes with an option for a fun cutout on the back. The pattern ranges in sizes from 12 months to size 12.
The pattern is very detailed and easy to follow. Throughout the pattern there are computerized images to further explain each step.
I followed the pattern except at the skirt part where I decided to alter it and make a more fitted skirt. One of my daughters prefers fitted skirts whereas my other girl loves anything gathered. It’s funny how different they are but I love that this pattern allows to me cater to both their likes with a few changes.
I used knit fabric purchased from Jo-Ann Fabrics and Craft Stores and happen to love the simplicity of the dress with these two fabrics together.
My little girl absolutely loves the dress! I put it on her just to check the length before hemming and she would not take it off. So as you can see the dress is still not hemmed. Usually when my girls fight me over taking an outfit off I just go with it and take it as a compliment…then I grab my camera fast because I know it will not stay clean very long. Good thing I did because two seconds later she was running through the garden.
If you are looking for that perfect little summer dress then I highly recommend this pattern!
Thanks again Lauren for inviting me to be part of your Summer of Soleil Blog Tour!
