Spring poked its head around the corner and very quickly disappeared again here in Paris! In our brief window of sunshine, I got excited and started unpacking our summer clothes that I had stored away over the winter. I came across a super cute dress of Violette’s that I made ages ago, from the most versatile pattern I have ever bought. I have made dresses, tunics and nightgowns based on this pattern from size 6 months to 5 year old, each of them being a success. I think this must also be one of the easiest patterns I know, without buttonholes, smocking or zips. Coco, Violette and I had a lot of fun looking through my little stash of fabrics and choosing some for new summer dresses.
If you are feeling like I did this weekend, motivated to quickly put together a simple but cute little summer dress, I really recommend this pattern! By the way: the photo of Violette was taken by the very talented Monika Elena last summer in the Tuileries Gardens. She is going to be in Paris in May for children’s photo sessions, in case anyone wants to book a session with her!
