When the opportunity came up to test Dandelions 'n' Dungarees fashion basics, we were all over that! But...it turned out my fabric options were beginning to feel limited...so I posted this picture. Do these work together?
Mr. CB was a firm no but we disagreed so we forged ahead happily sewing along! This pattern has a dress, skirt and tee option. We went with the skirt and tee as the Creative Princess doesn't really wear dresses to school but she will wear skirts there (I don't know, don't ask!)
So the mistake with the first photo is that it wasn't in good light because once we went outside, we were thrilled!
There is one small change we made (and you can't see it here) but we built in some shorts to make it a skort. Skorts are truly essential in the Princess' wardrobe. She doesn't want to worry about what she's showing off when she's out playing.
I love the simple finish on the shirt. It's cozy and easy to wear. The skirt is full and fun great for twirling but the yoke takes the bulk away from the waist which we definitely prefer.
Cozy, simple, girly...it measures up for sure!
