The Silly Gilly version of Kyoko

Last year at Inspired Stitches, I dreamt up a plan to make my daughter a new dress. Only now 11 months later has that dress finally been completed! Just in time for the Kindy Art Show this evening.


The pattern I used is Kyoko - Modkid by Patty Young. The pattern includes another version for a short sleeved top. I made the size 6 for my very tall 4 year old and it is a smidge too big for her. The design is roomy to begin with but never mind, I don't mind clothes that are too big. It just means that you can get more wear out of them! Poppet loves the new dress. I can see it teamed with leggings or jeans for cooler weather too. I love the japanese theme to this dress. It even has an obi that you tie around their waist to bring in the fullness of the dress! So cute!!

Fabrics used are 70's Rainbow Garden by Prints Charming (floral with white background), Andalucia Tiny Dots by Michael Miller (white with tiny polka dots) and Good Folks AH21 - Cathedral Peony by Anna Maria Horner for Free Spirit Fabrics (2 tone pink).
