KCW Day 4: Star Wars Dress

Typically only the birthday girl gets a new outfit, but since it happens to be Kid's Clothes Week and both girls are big Star Wars fans it seemed only fitting that little sister should get a new outfit too.  She insisted that she needed a "Dark Bader" dress and mama was happy to oblige.

I used a pattern I picked up at Hobby Lobby over the summer while they were on sale, McCall's 6017.  Sometimes I get so frustrated with these types of patterns because they seem to do things in such a weird way and over complicate things.  This pattern was pretty straight forward and it was nice to just cut and sew and not worry about it.  It's a very simple sundress pattern but worked perfectly for Kaitlyn.  She loves this style of dress so I knew it would be a hit, she's not quite as particular about her clothing choices.

I followed the pattern only making it a full size larger than I thought she probably needed.  For one, because I cut the pieces out while she was sleeping last night and didn't want to end up too small. Also because I knew that for at least the next six months or so it would be worn layered over a long sleeve shirt and I wanted to make sure she had plenty of room.  Bonus that she'll hopefully be able to still wear it for another year too.

The best part of this dress?  The extra fullness of the skirt made this an instant hit.  "It twirls so good when I spin!"  Yes, yes it does.
