Drop waist and side pony!

Not me! Not again, but check out this girl!
Adele rockin' the 80s with a drop waist and side pony! Her preferred hair style most days - Uggh!

Little Adele needed some new dresses for day care. She picked this pink stripey fabric a few months back at The Remnant Warehouse and I promised to make her a dress. 
Like me, Adele prefers to wear dresses most days and not many of her current dresses have sleeves, which are required at day care in Australia. I didn't use a pattern for this dress. I just traced over one of her tees and played with the neckline and skirt after she tried it on.
While I had light thread on my over locker and cover stich machine, I made her a second dress with this knit from the Alannah Hill outlet in Melbourne.
She likes this one best as it is shorter, which is a bit of a worry. I think I might knock up a couple more for her this weekend as they do eat up those smaller pieces of knit fabric that hog space in my stash.

Happy Friday for tomorrow!


  1. Cute! She'll be the best dressed kid at daycare! I do agree with her too that I like the second one best, love the different fabric combo.

  2. Gorgeous model and her dresses looks so cute!

  3. Oh my goodness, she is cute! Love the drop waist on her.
