My final dress for kids clothes week is this plaid hanami/geranium hybrid for Indigo.
I used the Hanami bodice pattern. But I shortened it by 2 1/2 inches and added faux cap sleeves (like last time).
The Hanami bodice closes with an invisible zipper.
For the skirt, I chose View B of the geranium dress.
I had planned to try pleats for my very first time. But I unwittingly bought a home dec fabric for this dress and the pleats didn't lay quite right, so I gathered it instead. And of course I had to match the stripes. It's become an addiction of mine. :)
And speaking of that home dec fabric (Tartan in Midnight - in sateen), I really, really love it for this dress. I love the shape of this skirt so much and the sateen holds it so well.
The geranium's view B has side pockets (called secret pockets by Indigo, since you can't really see them). I like this detail so much. I think it was brilliant of Rae to add them to the skirt pattern piece itself rather than making them a separate pattern piece.
Now that both Indigo and Iris have a few new dresses, Tia's up next.
