Playtime dress, OT 19 sewing continued

Last week, I showed you two patterns from OT 19*, the Pixel Pullover and Alfie Sweatpants. Today, I am showing you a dress pattern from OT 19. The Playtime dress is designed by Sew by pattern pieces. The eye catcher of this dress are the round sewn in pockets which create a very interesting color block option.

This blue dress, that I am showing first is, as usual actually the second of the two Playtime dresses that I sewed. In this blue dress I actually followed the instructions for the pockets, and sewed them as set in pockets. If you cut the main piece of the dress it has very big holes in it that you fill with these pockets. I have to admit I was a bit scared of them because, I am not the most precise sewist, that is why I cheated in the first version. But there was no need to be afraid. I just pinned them in and it worked like a charm. You have to pin, but if you do this, it lines up perfectly.

For the first dress I actually flipped the pocket to the inside and top stitched the pocket to the dress. This way you still have the circle shape, but your main fabric continues all the way to the pocket hole. I used a small lining to finish the pocket hole, that is why I top stitched the hole on the white dress. The fit of the dress is perfect and due to the fact that it has different sleeve lengths, your daughter can actually wear variations of this dress all year long.

The white dress I made with "magic" fabric, my kids and me immediately fell in love with the concept. Our kids always like me to make them clothes that can double as toys. They for example also really would love some clothes with the reversible pallets. I did buy a bit of that fabric, but I just did not find the inspiration yet. This fabric changes color in sun light and very quickly made itself in two garments, and I bought enough to make two more and I might or might not have ordered more... Shooting this one inside is a logical challenge, and she had to quickly run inside where I was waiting with my camera.

Pattern Revolution, as always during OT release organized a blog tour and there you can easily see all the good stuff that is OT 19. You can order your copy or the individual patterns here*.
