Ansley's First Day of School Dress
Ansley is starting kindergarten!! She picked these fabrics and I had fun playing with stripes. This is the Fawn Lily Dress pattern by Rebecca of Rock the Stitch for Willow and Co. I LOVE this pattern! I picked the crossover yoke, non pleated sleeves and pleated skirt, just like last time. I added a border at the bottom (basically the difference between the tunic length and dress length). I made a size six because that's how Ansley measures. It's a little bit longer than I like but she's probably due for a growth spurt soon. I also top stitched under the yoke in the front and back. I debated adding piping but didn't want to detract from the stripes.
