This is a party frock I've made for Harriet 'Wukulele' Booth's seven year old daughter. It's another Happy Homemade Sew Chic Kids garment, Dress J made from remnant fabrics left over from a beautiful bespoke Dig For Victory dress Harriet recently had made. Therefore, I take no credit for choosing these wondrous fabrics which were picked by Ms Booth herself – a green lawn print cotton by Michael Miller and contrasting garden gnome design cotton from Hoodie's Collection at Timeless Treasures.
There wasn't quite enough of the grass print fabric to make a full length skirt so I added a jolly gnome border to the hem. I also lined the bodice in a bright green cotton material left over from making this kimono.
The dress is a surprise Christmas present for Harriet's daughter – I do hope they both like it!
