I tested an incredible pattern for Cassie of Little Lizard King recently. It's the Ruchie I'm in LOVE! It is going to be great for my daughter's summer wardrobe and I hope to put some in my shop too.
Since we live in the wild west, I went with a blue bandana fabric from my stash. I think I got it at Walmart (!!) a bit ago.
We had a lot fun with this photo shoot. She's getting so good at modeling!
The Ruchie pattern includes directions to make a dress, peplum top or romper.
I added some black ribbon that I had for the trim on the front bodice.
The back can be shirred or can be made with elastic in casings. I did the elastic. The straps can be halter or can go through a fabric loop and tied in a bow like I did. Cassie LOVES options and all her patterns are such a great value with tons of options. I really appreciate that!
My daughter loves it a lot. My straps are too far out and bothered her arms, and either I messed up or she changed them in the final pattern, so I will be moving them in a bit and it will be perfect!
