Burda Style 9494 (View B)

If anyone is interested in participating in a Pay It Forward this year, hop on over to this blog post, I'm about to get busy making something fabulous to send to three lucky people! 

Two dresses for Ruby and one for Pepper-Mae, using View B of Burda Style 9494.

I'm not really happy with how the pattern handles the ends of the zipper at the neckline, although after making three dresses I now realise it may actually be my interpretation of the pattern and I might try a slightly different approach next time.

I like to get maximum value from any pattern I buy so I will no doubt make more.  I traced each pattern piece in 3 different sizes so that I could make the dress in multiple sizes.  The fit in the bodice is quite big on my girls, but they'll be able to wear them for a couple of summers.

And some matching hairties using scraps, which are project 32 and 33 of Scraps 101.

Linking up to:


  1. They are lovely dresses and matching hair ties! I have had two dresses cut out for my girls for over a year now ... naughty me.

  2. Very pretty. I love simple styles like this for little girls and your choices of fabric are cool too.

  3. Such delightful dresses that children can easily play in. Congratulations on beautiful work.

  4. Lovely dresses! I'll be making note of that pattern for when my little one gets bigger... though who knows if she'll be a dress wearer or not! :)
