CeCe Dress

Brace yourselves, here comes another pattern I tested (can you tell I'm addicted?)

This is the CeCe Dress from Popolok Designs.  You can also make it as a top (or sleeveless, or with a collar, there are lots of variations!).

The bodice is lined, and the skirt is attached to the bodice/peplum, with an invisible zip up the back.  This was my first time sewing an invisible zipper (not because I have been afraid of them, the chance just hasn't really presented itself so obviously before).  It isn't perfect, but when is a first try ever?  Alviana's drafting was lovely, as always, though I do think I would add a bit more length to the skirt if I make the dress version again.

Here's a little closer view of the fabric.  It's a sweet bird print from Riley Blake (my favorite) paired with a tone-on-tone yellow print, also from Riley Blake.  I've been purchasing quilting cottons specifically to make some clothes for Danielle while I can still get away with using them.  She's going to grow up and everything's going to have to be knit or denim or  "real" garment fabrics, and then there will be a point where she won't even want me to sew for her anymore :(  Until then, I have fabrics with cupcakes and birds and lots and lots of pink to sew :)


  1. Such a cute dress! That fabric is one of my favs too! I also relate to using as much cotton as a can now. My daughter is just starting to turn to the knits more. There are just too many cute cottons!

  2. This is so sweet and sunny! She looks adorable!
