I've already written a full review of this pattern before. In my review I mentioned that I didn't like the shape of this dress so in this version I took everyone's advice and made some changes to the pattern. I basically drew a line from the armhole to the hem swinging outward. For a kid pattern I thought an a-line shape would be more appropriate.

I took a much deeper hem so it would fall correctly. For this version I decided to use the cap sleeve and I think it's cute.

Warning: The neck is too tiny. Or maybe my daughter has a big head Either way, I need to make some changes to the neck so it isnt so uncomfortable when putting this dress on.

Fabric: I was on the lookout for giant polka dots in cute colors (what can I say? we are both polka dot obsessed). Etsy to the rescue!. I bought the purple and grey dots. Super cute. I will most definitely be buying from them again.

Love love love this pattern and just like the Ottobre Tank I plan to use this pattern for many variations.

OK. Both Dia and this dress are super cute! I do love the changes you made because an A-line is more little girl-like. Looks like I need to find a similar pattern for Emberly. She loves dresses and your use of fabric is a reminder that the cute comes from 2 sources: the little girl and the fabric.

With an adorable model, how can you go wrong with a look? I too love polka dots. The dress is cute and looks pert.
