So I've gotten quite carried away with my new found enthusiasm for sewing, that I ordered three back issues of Ottobre magazine, the children's pattern magazine from Finland. There's one or two projects in each one I'd like to make. One of them is this gorgeous dress for Monkey Pants. She doesn't have any nice dresses nor much occasion to wear one, but I figured she should have at least one nice dress that fits in her wardrobe when the occasion does arise so I don't have to be shopping for an overpriced dress at the last minute or trying to sew one the night before.
I love this dress, but I have to confess, I mostly love this fabric. Now how to figure out where to find this fabric. This is from the last issue pictured first above.
