This product was part of the 2016 Make For Good collection, a project powered by Etsy sellers from Australia and New Zealand in support of Plan International’s Because I Am A Girl campaign.
The theme for the Make For Good 2016 collection was “Creating a Brighter Future.” I designed a range of garments for young girls, aged 3 months to 3 years that are bright and fun- enjoy sewing!
I decided on a colour scheme and then bought a few metres of poplin in each colour. Poplin is cheap and light, and handles well when sewn. This way I could make a collection of garments in different colours, that still resulted in a coordinated look when worn together.
So many fabrics are suitable for this dress, including up-cycling options. Consider using second-hand shirts, or even sheets! Mix and match colours and patterns for the sleeve, flounce (butterfly) and dress. Use scraps for a bow or headband. Make it your own!
Intermediate. The main technical sewing is during construction of the sleeve, and is similar to sewing a welt pocket. A support video showing the process can be found at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b-LUnaceFEY
