I’ve been super busy with making things for the shop, so I don’t make a lot of stuff for
us to actually keep and wear! But I got the chance to try out the Sunki Dress by Figgy’s, so Eleanor totally got dibs on this one!
This fabric has been standing out to me every time I go to Joann’s, and it was perfect for the Sunki. It has some structure to it, and the weight is perfect for fall and winter. I used an off-white canvas for the pockets, and a gold zipper for the back! It has instructions for a regular zipper, but I decided to do an exposed one.
It’s still a little big on Eleanor, but she’ll grow into it soon enough. The style is meant to be a bit boxy, so if you have a narrow girl you might want to size down and add length. It will be really cut with tights and boots, I think!
It’s not too tricky of a project. The pockets are probably the hardest part, but there is a tutorial right here with extra pictures to help.Check out Go To Patterns* for more fun projects. I love this website because it is basically a collection of a bunch of the “best of” from a bunch of different designers. Plus if you sign up for the newsletter you can get lots of coupons!
