Owl Joy - KCW Day 3

Abigail loves her new dress - it's a dress and has a hood, and it has owls! 

Pattern: Peekaboo Pattern Shop Hangout Hoodie
Size: 2T
Mods: Added about 1" to the hem in case it shrinks a bit more. Good thing as it would otherwise have been too short!
Fabric: Joanne Owls interlock and Patty Young's Heaven and Helsinki for Michael Miller pink lattice jersey

Placket detail. Good thing the pink trim has good recovery or the interlock would have been badly stretched out. This part I fiddled on forever! Could not get it square. Finally I basted each corner separately and then was able to serge it in nicely. Topstitched with a double needle and woolly nylon in the bobbin.

"Aren't you done yet, Mom?"


  1. love how it looks--the owl fabric is so cute! And, I love her 'glare' ;)

  2. Love the dress, very cute and lol her face at the end lol

  3. One of my favorites that you've made :)
