It was high time my kraken got a kraken dress, right?

The second I saw the cotton & steel octopi fabric, I knew it was meant to be.

I’m kind of a creature of ease-if I have a pattern cut out on my table already, more often than not I’ll just use it again.

So this is the same tute I used for this dress…it worked with the one yard of fabric I had and it’s loose fitting and long enough to last her probably a year or so.

Then I guess I’ll have to find some more octopus fabric!

I wish you could see her pouty kraken face better here, lol!

I added a little faux tie out of hot pink fold over elastic to bring out the hot pinkish purple on the fabric.

It was a hard color to match but I got close enough I think!

and par for the course, she loves her pockets.

and now I can rest easy knowing my kraken has a kraken dress.

  1. SO CUTE. Love how easy/casual this looks. She is a doll!!

  2. Ever since I saw your dress in KCW I am addicted to this pattern as well. It is so easy that I can sew one during lunch break. I have made two last week and already have plan to make a few more. This is great! Thanks for sharing!!

  3. This is just too cute!!!


  5. Great job! I would never think a kraken could be cute but this certainly is!

  6. Very cute! I love that octopus fabric every time I see it.

  7. So cute! I love how kids fabric prints these days are going beyond the obvious cute/zoo animals themes and making them look so fabulous.

  8. She is beautiful. I love the bow, the pockets and the gathered neckline. I have a little Ava as well 🙂

  9. OMGosh! I have a little Kraken too! And it also happens to be my third daughter as well! NEED this fabric, just gorgeous as always =D
