Test Run of the Balloon Dress


As I mentioned in a previous post I am taking part in a sew along of the beautiful balloon dress from this Japanese Pattern Book.

I had the pattern traced out the fabric purchased but I couldn't wait to give it a go so I went to the Op Shop and purchased a doona cover to use for a trial run.

The fabric of the doona cover was lovely, great quality and matched the style of dress really nicely.

It came together really quickly and I finished it in a day.
I didn't really have any issues when making the dress.

I made the size 5 and I'm not sure if it is too big.
I think it is ok and with a little time before Summer I'm sure she will grow enough to fit it just fine.

Linking up here.

  4. Beautiful! I'm trying to decide what size to make my almost 4 y/o. I cut out the 100 but it looked too small. You mentioned this is a size 5 - would that be the 110?
