Who? Who? Whose cute owl dress is this?

OwlDressFrontThis adorable little jumper dress is for my daughter, based on a 1970’s Style 2263 pattern gifted me by a fellow mum.

The fabric is a lightweight small-wale cotton cord, which was purchased at the Knitting and Stitching Show last October. It wasn’t cheap at £16 a metre, but it’s just so cute, it was totally worth the money.

OwlDressBackI didn’t match up the pattern on the back seam, but I’m really ok about that. It seemed random enough to get away with it, and the gathering on the back means that when the dress is worn and in motion, it’s not too noticeable.
