Zebra Hopscotch dress

Here’s another Hopscotch dress made for and worn to Elsa’s end of term Jungle Party yesterday.

She has worn her other Hopscotch dress so much it seemed like the obvious choice. I had the Zebra knit fabric hanging around since before I started sewing.

Oliver + s Hopscotch Dress

There’s nothing Elsa appreciates more than a knit dress. Easy to get on and off, light and comfortable to wear.There’s no better way to get into my daughter’s wardrobe.

The Hopscotch dress was actually the first Oliver + s pattern that I bought but somehow it was overlooked until now. It’s a perfect winter dress. Enough interesting details to make it, well, interesting but simple and not so full that there’s loads of fabric getting in the way but not so tight that you can’t still climb trees as she amply demonstarted tonight.

I decided to ‘Farbenmix’ it up a bit and used some of my Euro fabric for the arms. The purple is a lovely cotton/elastane mix bought for a $1.50 from the remnant bin. I love remnant bins!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The embroidery is from Tinimi and I’ve had it for ages. It’s one of the first embroidery sets I ever bought but I’ve never used this file before. I thought the the owl/tree combo was perfect to go with the green fabric which has little owls and trees in it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I added a little ribbon to the other side just for another splash of green.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Elsa loves it and insisted on wearing it out tonight. Yay!
