Because of the yummy colours, I had in mind to call it the Candy Dress.
But I must have been distracted that sewing day (that happens) because I got the proportions kind of wrong. It was way too wide. I wanted it to be wide with a full skirt but it was simply too much. And as much as I hate doing this, I had to "tinker" to make it wearable. That's why it became the After School Dress because I think we'll keep this one mainly at home.
It suits well the after school knees anyway ...
And after being all day in a uniform, it is a welcome splash of colours.
The shape works now and gives the retro style I was after.
And although it is not perfect, Mia loves it.
