Lots of pink for a 4 year old

A niece who is 4, so another dress, and of course a hat - all of which matched one of the dolls dresses.

The pattern is one I used before for a dress for my daughter, and is from this Japanese pattern book
I modified it by adding extra pleats to the sides, and slightly changing the sides and armholes of the dress as I thought the original pattern was wide fitting.

I added buttons to the back rather than a zip. The hat is my own pattern, same as the one matching the Feliz dress.
This niece is in the middle of the 'pink' phase, her mother informed me, and she picked the fabric herself when she came to visit.

The pleat details, and the pocket with a little bit of Farbenmix ribbon.

Pin It Now!  


  1. Very pretty set. I'm sure she'll love it.

  2. Thanks Millie, I enjoyed making it too, especially the hairbands and little dress - they came together very quickly.
