At the end of the school year, McKenna had a safari themed day at school. I decided to go the easy route and order a zebra print dress I saw on sale. But of course, the mail didn't arrive on time. So at nine o'clock at night I found myself furiously whipping up a safari themed dress for her to wear at school the next day. I got pretty lucky since I had this awesome Serengeti organic knit from Fabricworm on hand. I mean, if your talking safari I don't think I could have gotten any closer. And if you don't know how soft Fabricworm's organic knits are, you have got add these to your bucket sewing list. They are my go to for my kids knit clothes.
I needed something that wasn't going to take too long, so I finally got a chance to use The Anywhere Dress which I has been in my pattern stash for ages. I have actually had it in my mind to make this dress about half a dozen times. I still have a few versions that I want to sew up for the fall. I like the simple silhouette and the adorable cap sleeves.
I actually made a size 6 wide since I was using interlock knit and not jersey and size 5 tall, which now looks a little short on her. She has definitely grown taller this summer, even though she is still one of the shorties in her class.
As you can see McKenna decided that Elsa was a much needed prop and even had me style her hair in the latest style of choice, otherwise known as an Elsa braid. Seriously, why wouldn't Elsa and the Serengeti go together? #kidstyle
