I was fortunate to be able to test out a new pattern for Heidi & Finn Modern Wears for Kids recently. For those who've been here for awhile, you'll remember I made some Heidi & Finn Urban Hoodies a couple of years ago for the boys. This time around it was a dress for Jem... aren't they both adorable?!
Follow Heidi & Finn on facebook if you'd like to keep up to date with new patterns, the Colorblock Dress is now available, and you have heard it here that this is a very easy make and there are endless possibilities for personalising this pattern. Clearly I chose the simple option this time, using up my stash and appealing to my love of simple, plus I think Jem rocks the colour blue!
It does up at the back with a button and loop, so there are no buttonholes or zips to wrangle, which always helps! I have used a favourite red & white button but of course everytime I tried to take a pic, our subject moved, or rolled away! I made the 12 month size knowing that the length would be a touch long but the chest would fit well with hopefully a little room to grow. The dress is fully lined and will be great layered with a cardigan and tights through winter, and fingers crossed she can get some wear out of it in spring too? Maybe that's just a bit too hopeful with the speed this one is growing!!
Pattern :: Heidi & Finn Colorblock Dress
