The Ethereal Dress {a pattern review}

Living in a tiny town far far away from everything it is difficult to find hip and age appropriate clothing for P. Also, we do not have a child's clothing store in this town and have to drive roughly 30 minutes to shop at a not so great quality or selection big box store. I know, I know, horrible. So, I rely heavily on either mail order from my favorite places or making clothes. 

Figgy's Studio has released their latest children's pattern line and it is stunning! 

I made the Ethereal Dress for P. Wow! The dress sewed up just splendidly and looks fantastic on P. My favorite part is the little detail on the back.

P and I chose the Echino aqua birds fabric I had in my stash. P was sized for the 8/9 pattern and it took all of the two yards of fabric I had. The Ethereal Dress pattern comes in 18months - 8/9 size and has the option to have long sleeves or sleeveless. There is also options for length which include the full length dress, knee length dress, tunic, or blouse. P loves her dresses and we opted for sleeveless and knee length. I do think I will make her a few tunic length tops for the warmer weather. 

 P is modeling for our family Christmas photo shoot.

The Echino fabric really works well with this pattern, it has just the right amount of fluidity without being sheer. The Ethereal Dress could work in a variety of fabrics and would make a beautiful special occasion dress or a simple go to the beach tunic. There is a sweet ruffle on the bodice and the bird print lined up perfect.

(Figgy's is located in Portland, OR! I was so excited about that since at times I feel I am living in exile on the south coast of Oregon. So, please support Oregon makers!)
