Summer dress


Fun to sew a new dress, this time using Japanese fabrics, from Kokka (Melody Miller's Ruby Star Rising collection). This dress has hidden interior pockets inside the large patch pockets. Dragon flies in the medallions on the front. It's 95 in the shade today, the perfect day to wear a new summer dress.

Is this a commercial pattern? It is lovely

Thanks, all. I made this one with the idea of a matreshka doll. Perfect for me. Only I wish it were skinnier! Then I would be skinnier.

Knit on Regardless, yes, an old McCalls pattern. I've sewn it so many times, so many variations.

Such an adorable dress! Just came across the photo on Pinterest. :) Any chance you know the number of the McCall's pattern? Thanks so much!
