For Claire: Popover Sundress
I tend to make more clothes for Sadie than I do Claire, because Claire is pretty set up with all the hand me downs. Well, last night I came to a holding point on a bigger project that I'm working on & really needed to just get something done quick. You know so that I could have that feeling of accomplishment before I started back in on my bigger project. So, I used the free oliver + s popover sundress pattern & made a little dress for Claire.
I love it. She loves it. She was so excited that I made something for her. Something just her size.
It's not quite sundress weather here, so I put a short sleeved white t-shirt & grey capri length leggings under this & it looks adorable! The blue fabric is Heidi Grace from Joann's which I bought a while back & the yellow is a linen/cotton blend also from Joann's. Actually I bought both of these out of the clearance section when it was marked an additional 50% off & I had no project in mind for them at the time of purchase. I'm happy with the pairing.
