I should probably start by apologizing for the long (and totally unintentional) absent from this space. I was planning to stay away for only a couple of weeks (during our summer break), but coming back and settling ourselves into our usual routines is proving more difficult than expected.
Obviously, the fact that mum and dad are already back to work while the kids are still waiting for the start of the school year is not helping (at all)!
Well, I guess that will help us acquire some much needed flexibility and resilience (especially me, as I’m the one doing most of the complains. I’m sure, the kids wouldn’t mind being school-free for yet another couple of months …).
In line with other Townmouse patterns, this adorable sundress is so easy to sew – no complicated techniques nor unnecessary details. Just a perfect little summer dress – classic and timeless ❤
My little girl helped me pick this fabric (from a new local quilting shop) and was very excited to have a new dress waiting for her the next morning.
The Adelaide sundress features a pretty shoulder tie and a round neckline, which makes it so easy to dress (and undress). No need for additional zippers or buttons – it was truly a pleasure to sew it.
Both me and my girl were totally smitten by the shoulder bow. It’s such a beautiful detail and, in my opinion, it does makes it such a unique pattern.
The dress has a loser fit, which obviously make it so comfortable to wear, especially when it’s still so hot outside.
This is a size 8. No mods, but I did made a deeper hem, hoping it will last her yet another season.
Nonetheless, “summer weather” will still be around for a couple of weeks before starting to cool-off, so she’ll still have plenty of opportunities for wearing this one.
