Ok, so this dress is probably my favorite of the three Easter dresses! I just love a good play on stripes!

I got this white and coral striped fabric ages ago-at Hobby Lobby maybe?

I played around with my old 5 and 10 Designs bodice but it pretty much ended up being a Geranium dress with the bodice lengthened and cap sleeve option, if you need a pattern recommendation!

I love how turning the stripes on the skirt and pockets adds so much fun visual interest and makes a simple dress really POP!

Of course, Charlotte loved how much room there was for snacks in her pockets. 😉

    What a cute daughter and dress. I love the geranium dress pattern and use it regularly for my 3 young grand daughters. I’m busy making summer dresses with it right now for them. I love how you’ve lengthened the bodice and dress length and given it a whole new look. Also changing the pocket shape. Thank you for sharing and also giving me a whole set of new tweaks for this pattern.

  2. I love the different directions on the stripes- and that lovely stripe matching on the back placket! She’s so cute!

    How big are the pockets? I’m about to totally copy this dress for my 4-year-old. :)

  4. I love all of the stripes on this dress! Seems to me I remember my mother sewing a very similar dress for me when I was about this age. I still have the pictures of me in it. My daughter and I just started sewing using a very simple dress pattern for her on her kids sewing machine, and it also comes with a pattern for her doll. Fun!
