Birthday dress for Stella

Happy birthday sweet girl ...hope you like your new dress xxx

Made from Tessuti Cotton/Linen Denim, aqua diagonal stripe bias-binding and green vintage button. I used easy dress Pattern J (page 14 and 49) from Innocent and Lovely Girlswear ISBN978-4-579-11194-7- you may find stock of this Japanese pattern book still available in Chatswood.
Note: only alteration - I changed the casing at centre back (for the straps to feed through) instead I added elastic there and made the straps tie at the shoulders.

Hope to get a photo of Stella wearing this soon ;)


  1. This looks great! I have this book and love it too! I am currently working on a top using the pattern shown on the cover, and plan to make the jumper/apron dress to go over it. I really like the way you did this dress. So cute.

  2. Oh, so pretty! Love that contrast binding :o)

  3. Most adorable. I love that the gathered section is confined to the front of the dress. Yours is much cuter than the one in the book. Happy Birthday to Stella.

  4. Lucky girl - such a sweet dress - the contrast is wonderful. Happy birthday to your darling!

  5. Love the dress Collette - the label is cool too - must get some made up - did she love it?

  6. Thank you Cherri,

    yes she loved it and has worn it a few times already. In fact Stellas mum wants to make up some more for her.
