The numerous cute fabrics in our workroom make it hard to choose the perfect combination for a project; besides the children’s choice does not always match our own preferences. Consequently we made more than 1 version of the ‘Jacoba’ dress for both daughters.
Today we present Jade in the red version. 

The green fabric is very nice Japanese fabric with a touch of retro. We discovered this fabric on the cute site of Fifi Jolipois.
We bought a small piece that was used for a previous project and by the time we wanted to order a next piece of the fabric, Fifi Jolipois ran out of stock in the desired color. A far too long online search brought me here, the same fabric in various colors.

Louka in her teal dress with red accents; the red Kokeshi fabric was also bought at Fifi Jolipois.

Despite my arguments that puffed sleeves are more for small children, I was disallowed to leave out the sleeves in the first version of the dress. For the second dress I got permission and the sleeves were cut but not attached.

This dress needs pictures of kids swirling around.

Red and teal solid fabric: Kona Solids of Robert Kaufman, bought @ Classic Quilts & Quilting
