K. has a massive wardrobe of clothes and definitely doesn't need anything new. She's so enthusiastic and appreciative whenever I do make her something that I get a lot of joy from making her new things, though :). And I knew she would love the Gracie dress by Blaverry.
It's a quick sew and, because of the slim fit, doesn't require very much fabric. The heart fabric is a super soft, cozy sweatshirt fabric from l'oiseau (it was a presale and is not available any more but they have lots of lovely retail fabrics and another presale event coming up).
This is a straight size 8 and the only change I made was to sew up the side seams using a 1/4" SA instead of 3/8". The sweatshirt fabric has a bit of stretch but I didn't want it to be too tight.
As you can tell, she likes it :)
