My daughter picked out this crazy frog fabric on a summer shopping trip. I knew that I'd use it to make The Nelle dress, by Brownie Goose. I have made the BG Lazy Susan a couple times and wanted to try a different pattern. I will certainly be making more of these. The Nelle went together very quickly (though it would have been faster if I could have found my rolled hem foot for my machine!). I look forward to playing around with adding trim or using more than one fabric next time I make this dress. Perhaps it's finally time to cut up my coveted Tula purple raccoons to make her a dress. It's more likely I'll pick something else for the next one, but maybe the one after that. ;-)
This isn't exactly a winter dress, but we're in California, so throw on some leggings and a sweater and she could wear this now. It's also big enough that it will still fit her in Spring/Summer. To be honest, I kinda want one in my size (though maybe not this fabric). ;-)
I think this is a great beginner pattern with just one piece of elastic in casing and nothing too picky to fiddle with.
Thanks for visiting!
