Polka Dot Safari Raglan Dress

Happy Monday everyone! I can’t believe it’s already time for another Kid’s Clothes Week season this week!! Gah… And I haven’t even planned or really thought of anything this time around… Maybe that’ll be a good thing 😉 lol. Well today I’m going to share with you another pattern test I did earlier in the month that I’m pretty excited about.

I would like to introduce you to the Safari Raglan Tee and Dress by Titchy Threads. First of all, Titchy Threads has slowly become one of my favourite pattern companies lately! I have no shame in saying I have almost every pattern Laura has released… I have MORE shame in saying though that I have yet to sew up the majority though. But anyways, back to this dress…

For the test I sewed up a size 5 dress, with size 8 length… with short sleeves. The fit is so good! And such a quick sew too, that I have the pattern already printed and just need to cut it to make the boys some! Gah… the possibilities. This pattern also comes with the option of having pockets (along the waist for the dress and on the chest for the tee), but I skipped them on this one because I just loved the polka dot so much!

Speaking of polka dots… The polka dot fabric I got from Girl Charlee, they don’t have this one specifically but do have a few fun colourways here. And the blue jersey is a Laguna Jersey in Royal  that I grabbed from the imagine gnats shop. The polka dots doesn’t have a lot of stretch but works great for this dress and the Laguna jersey… I can’t say I love this stuff enough! It’s always a pleasure to work with it!

So the only thing I’m finding about this dress is it makes me think a bit of a nightgown, but she has worn it during the day with a pair of leggings and it seems fine. So I’m probably overthinking the WHOLE thing!

Well… Now that it’s kid’s clothes week… I think I’ll get sewing some more shorts and tees for the summer for the boys. You know, things they need 😉 Are you sewing along this season? I’d love to hear your plans… Or how you get organized for kcw!
