This dress is a variation on Purl Bee’s lovely Embroidered Denim Jumper. I love the Purl Bee blog! The Purl Soho store in Manhattan is an amazing place to visit- it looks like a bright candy store and is full of yarn and fabric and books and projects. I used some vintage plaid to make this dress for Ada. The jumper made up so quickly and easily I can’t wait to try the pattern out in other fabrics. Etsy has some pretty plaid choices here. The jumper requires very little machine sewing and it was fun to play around with new embroidery stitches. This dress is the first of the sister dresses for this year. (Here are last year’s).
