This little girl loves knit dresses. And she especially loves the Soleil dress I made her in a yellow Dachsund print this past summer. She wore it several times a week! But it's a bit cool for wearing that, so I thought I should make her a long sleeved Dachsund. With tights it should work just fine indoors.
This time I used the green and navy version of this knit, which is equally cute. Especially with purple and white tennis shoes, according to Tess! And I used the dress version of my new Game Day Jersey Pattern.
I sewed the size 3 dress for my typically size 4 girl, because I wanted to try a more fitted look with this pattern. (You can compare this fit to the size 4 she is wearing in the original post on this pattern.)
I love all the possible variations in this pattern. I wanted to maximize the Dachsund print so I used it for the yoke, bodice and skirt, with contrasting solid navy for the sleeves and neckband. Pretty fancy print matching on the yoke, if I do say so myself.
I love this doggy version! And so does Tess. Hooray!
