Papaya Whip

I made this dress almost a year ago, so the pudgy 3 year old is now 4 and lanky in comparison. The dress was all cut out but I didn't get to it until the end of the summer, so unfortunately it didn't get many wears.

I like the simple dress with the bow as the main feature. It's difficult to see in the photo, but the dress also has a center front panel. It's supposed to be lined, but I faced the neck and arm edges instead.

I cut out a new bloomers pattern for this one and was surprised to see how billowy they are! I suppose they'd be cute on a younger toddler, but they're a bit much on a 3 1/2 year old. They're also supposed to be lined and ruffled. Again, simplicity reigned.

Huh, there's a button there!

And lastly, the hat. Luckily this one still fits and will get many more wears over the summer.

The stats:

Fabric: pale pink linen

Dress: Papaya Whip Linen Dress (Ottobre 3-2011-8)
Bloomers: Frilly Ruffle Bloomers (Ottobre 3-2011-7)
Hat: Little Sailor Hat (Ottobre 3-2011-9)


  1. This is beyond adorable. Oh, the dress and bloomers are very nice, too ;-) !

  2. Very cute! I loved making our girls hats when they were that age. Now they have so many opinions about what I make them. LOL

  3. Too that bow detail.

  4. So cute! My daughters used to have matching dresses and hats, but that's all over now (sigh!). enjoy it!

  5. You've made an amazing set for her. Too cute:)
