The Red Dress

I am super excited to share with you the Red Dress...in purple!


Keilana is a super girly girl. She was, however, blessed/cursed with two big brothers. So she simply adores her cousin Zoey. You get these two girls in the vicinity of each other and they are nearly inseparable. Though Zoey is also super girly, she's not one for ruffles. She has a more simplistic, modern girl style. So, when I had the chance to test the Red Dress pattern for Kikoi Patterns I knew right away I had to make matching dresses for the girls. This dress satisfies the modern girly style with out all the fancy frills. Just comfort and style...perfect.


I used a plum purple and gray heart cotton jersey for the front of the dresses. The back of the dress is made with a plum colored cotton/rayon blend jersey.
 

The pattern features a simple sleeveless A-line style with a bow back. A bit unexpected and completely adorable!


The pattern sews up really quickly and directions were easy to follow along with. 

 

The faux tied bow in the back is tacked together so no worries about it coming undone with active girls.
There is no restriction of movement here! These girls are unstoppable!
 

I fell in love with Kikoi Patterns immediately upon finding them! No joke! These patterns are unique and so, SO adorable. I want ALL of them! Have you seen the Polka Dot Dress with the kitty pockets? <3 <3 <3 Love it! Keilana would go crazy for this one.  


Here is more of the Red Dress...because this dress pattern rocks!


Is the cuteness killing you yet? ; )
