I’ve been working on the dress for the Solitary Girl of “minus the sun, night all day” collection and here is the calico version I’ve done. It is a little sporty with sweatshirt details such as the triangle at the neckline, the pocket for both hands, and the drawstring at the hem. The final one will have a crocheted hood as well. The sleeves are made a bit longer because it will have crocheted cuffs with thumbholes in the final one. I wanted it to look comfortable and protective. I want my girl to feel safe.
This is the sample I did first but decided not to use this time. It looks good as it is but didn’t think it would work well with a crocheted hood. I might use the pattern for another design but not sure yet. Pleats at the neckline, elasticated waist, gathered cuffs with binding and covered buttons, and a drawstring hem.
