Ruffle collar Dresses

Book:  Everyday Girl Clothes
Size:  100 cm, 90 cm
Fabric:  Robert Kaufman solid cotton

Marie' picked this book up for me while she was in Japan and I think I want to make everything in it.  There was some question about what size to trace for the two girls but after doing a quick muslin I found this book runs bigger than some of the others.

These dresses were intended as play dresses for fall/winter but I'm afraid the quilting cotton I used may not be substantial enough.  I may have to make an under slip when the weather turns.  I do love the colors though.

The original design suggests using lace trim on the pockets but I had trouble finding a good match. Instead I got a wing needle and used a decorative stitch. I'm happy how that turned out and will try to use my wing needle on a few more projects since I spent $5 on it.  


  1. Just darling! Love the ruffle collar detail. Where did you get the little tags you sewed on the pocket?

  2. The tags are from - they make it look boutiqueish

  3. I love this dress! Where can I find the pattern/book?

  4. Stephanie- here is a link to an ebay seller I really like. There are lots of other sources but I'll save that for a post
