Orange Tent Dress

With hot weather and summer around the corner, I’ve been adding a few new easy-to-wear additions to M closet.


You’ve probably seen M wearing this dress before on my Instagram, but I haven’t share the full details, so here they are

The pattern I used is Mod.136 from the 05/2016 Burdastyle, this sewing pattern is the perfect summer dress for little girls – a Girl’s tent dress.

I didn’t add the embroidered trim to the dress panels as instructed by Burda, and I added ties to the thin straps on the shoulders. The fabric I used has no stretch to it, I had it in my stash for years. this fabric is a little unusual for us because it’s orange plaid – yes, orange!

I thought that with this pattern it would be fun to play with the grainline for a visual effect and a cool design. I really like how it turned out and I already have on my to-do list a different version of it, maybe playing with different fabric colors, just need to find the right ones…

I hope everyone has a great weekend!

Com o tempo quente e o verão ao virar da esquina, tenho estado a adicionar algumas novas peças fáceis de usar ao armário M.
Provavelmente já viram a M com este vestido no Instagram, mas como ainda não compartilhei todos os detalhes, aqui estão eles 🙂

O molde que usei é o Mod.136 da BurdaStyle 05/2016, este molde de costura é o vestido de verão perfeito para meninas pequenas – um vestido tenda.

Eu não adicionei a guarnição bordada aos painéis de vestido como estava nas instruções da Burda, e acrescentei uns laços nas alças nos ombros. O tecido que usei não tem elasticidade, e estava no meu monte há anos. Este tecido é um pouco comum para nós porque é um xadrez cor de laranja – sim, laranja!

Achei que com este padrão seria divertido jogar com a linha do tecido, para um efeito visual e um design mais giro. E realmente, gosto de como ficou, até já tenho na minha lista de tarefas uma versão diferente deste, talvez jogando com diferentes cores de tecido, ando à procura…

Um bom fim de semana para vocês!

  1. That is a pretty dress. I love the orange color you chose and the fabric to use. It is indeed perfect for the summer. I have always wanted to learn to sew but the sewing machine hates me. 🙂

  2. This little girls dress is adorable and the design of it makes it also equally comfortable. I love the warm colour way that you choose to . Does it come in other colours? Its lovely to see younger girls clothing that is age appropriate.

  3. This is a really good additional to a little girls wardrobe. Easy to wear, easy to wash, and its cool for summer. Most importantly it looks like it will “swish”, and little girls love this !
