School Clothes {The Green Dress}

Another item for school came off the machine last weekend. I'm not sure I can keep this one put away until the Fall when school starts. 

Green dress 3
She wore it around town (Boston) this weekend. With all the green flying around here right now for the basketball championship she fit right in. 

Green dress 4
I used a tissue weight cotton knit so it is very light and comfortable. It definitely needs the leggings with it because of the weight. Pattern from this book.

Green dress 1
The shape is so wonderful. Perfect for a picky girl who just likes to be comfortable.

Green dress 2
I just can't decide. One pocket, or two? I only added one at this point but I'm considering putting on another. I do like the asymmetry of just one pocket. What do you think? Should I add another?

    That is a really cute dress…I love the bold stripes. Sorry it didn’t help the Celtics (I am an L.A. girl…but do not like the Lakers – don’t tell!)

    Soooo cute! My girls would love something like this! Too bad I’m too chicket to sew clothes. Curtains and pillows are my only comfort zone.

    Are the patterns in this book all in Japanese? I only ask because I am currently in Japan and there are no American patterns to be had here. I would love to buy some of the cute Japanese patterns I have seen but I am nervous about the language barrier. I would love to know more about your experience using this book. Thanks!
