Ever had this. You are taking pictures of your child and at some point you look at your camera screen and think…. Uhm. Maybe not this one, she looks like a giant banana….. No?! Well I did! Hi Hi.
After sewing this Omni dress hack for my little Diva I needed to sew one more. And so I did. This time I used a summer sweat fabric that I bought at Joyfits this summer. I had already used the blue version for Domi shorts for my son. It is a lovely but very stretchy fabric to work with, so pressing your seams is a must. Really, do not skip your pressing. It does wonders for the end result.
I lost track of how many Omni’s I have sewn so far but if you follow the blog you will notice I have sewn quite a lot. Maybe I should create a summary post on all the Omni’s I have sewn…… I am in love with the neckline on this pattern. Plus I just love the dress hack for girls.
For this dress I used the Hoodie option. I lined the hood with black knit (also from Joyfits) and used that same knit for the cuffs and waistband that now sits at het her knies. I did not use the pocket this time to make sure it would be a quick sew. 30 Minutes it took me. Add 10 minutes for cutting the fabric (the pattern I already had cut out) and this was a 40 minute sew. Perfect for late night sewing to clear your head.
Can you see the banana thing yet?
When wearing this dress and not taking pictures it looks less banana-ish. It actually looks quite nice on her. But then I feel like this little Diva can wear any color and look beautiful (I know I am biased). The length is still a bit long. I wanted her to be able to wear it after her next growth spurt. She’s growing so so so fast. Can you believe that she just turned 3 last week?!
Before you click away tell me…..Do you have a favorite Sofilantjes pattern? And what is your favorite color for your child?
