The Day by Day Dress is absolutely perfect for a casual outing or can be dressed up for that special event. It’s a pattern that can take you so many different directions with numerous sleeve options from classic to gathered, or a sweet fluttery bell. You can give it a vintage vibe with the perfect trim or lace, or you can make it a simple sew that will be perfect for outside play. Sooooo many options!
It comes together quickly with very easy-to-understand instructions and plenty of diagrams/photos to follow. The gathered skirt has the perfect amount of twirl for all ages. Plus, it looks just lovely in a soft woven rayon or cotton fabric. I love the feminine look of the gathered shoulder in the sleeve. Also, the elastic band with 3/4 sleeves was perfect for my tween because she is not big on ruffles and frills. She absolutely loves this dress. So, I can officially say it is the first we have put in her closet in almost a year!
The bodice is lined, which I love because of the ease with no need to hem the collar/neckline. Therefore, it gives it a bit more stability. A few simple buttons help round out the sweet simplicity of this dress and make it a breeze from start to finish. I see many more of these in my future! With the many options, it will be perfection for both my girls. You can snag this lovely pattern over at Winter Wear Designs while it’s on sale now! Suzanne really knocked it out of the ballpark with this one!
