Last week, when I made this dress for Adele, it was almost 30 degrees. It felt a little silly to sew such a warm dress on a warm day. This week, Winter hit Sydney and it has been shockingly chilly (OK Tanit-isis – the weather def isn’t chilly by your standards. You’d still be waltzing around in a tank, but it is cold for us Aussies).
This is the second time that I’ve made this Heidi and Finn pattern. This time I did not make it before the school run, but I did make Adele 6 pairs of leggings like the ones pictured to keep her happy. My stash is now feeling a little lighter, with a number of scraps and a wadder now transformed into finished garments for the kiddo.
