Orange Dress Plans (+ Actual Fabric Acquisition)

Orange, white and brown floral cotton

Considering I haven't so much as opened my sewing machine cabinet since Baby Z's birth, I really have no business adding to my overflowing fabric stash. However, I recently brought Z along to my first post-baby Brooklyn Burdastyle Sewing Club meetup (wearing an outfit I made for her, naturally)... and afterwards we took a little stroll over to the fabulous Brooklyn General yarn and fabric store.

When I saw the above fabric, I thought it'd be perfect for one of the Oliver + S patterns from my stash, either the Tea Party Sundress:

...or the Playdate dress:

I also got some solid brown cotton for the yoke or bodice:

Of course I already have three UFO baby dresses I started for Baby Z back in March that would really require only a few hours or less to finish... but considering the state of the apartment after several months of taking care of a newborn, and my return to work next week, it might be a while.

Still, a girl can dream!


  1. So adorable! I can't wait to see those dresses all make up :)))

  2. Who will be looking after Baby Z when you return to work?

  3. Oh, good, I'm happy to hear. It would be a bit too early for anybody else looking after her. :-)

  4. Definitely! I'm really glad it's my mom. Still having a rough day without my baby girl, though!

  5. Yep, it must be. It is early to go back to work. I am very happy that we have a longer maternity leave here in Denmark.


I'd love to hear from you! But no ads please--I'll just have to delete them.
