As soon as Memorial Day hits- it’s all summer sewing until Back to School season begins late July! If you’re looking for a fun and fresh style to sew for your little girl, the Clementine is a great choice! Foo Foo Threads typically features lots of ruffles and full skirts, but this style is more of a subtle silhouette with an optional flounced sleeve detail and either a gathered circle skirt or a standard gathered rectangle skirt. Clementine also has the option for a sweet and dainty front collar and a topstitched sash. The back is finished with a knot tie and a low elastic casing for easy on/off and room to grow.
I sewed up the Clementine with the collar and rectangle skirt option. For the sake of time, fabric and simplicity, I opted to leave off the ruffle sleeve and sash. I used some of my favorite prints from Maureen Cracknell's Garden Dreamer collection for Art Gallery Fabrics that I scored from the Sample Spree at Quilt Market!
The collar is so sweet- I just had to fussy cut some bumblebees to really show it off!
I love the back of the dress- perfect for summer! For the next one, I will shorten the elastic to bring the back even closer to the skin and keep the dress from gaping.
The Clementine Dress sewed up in a jiffy, especially quick since I left off some of the options. I found the directions to be extremely thorough. Every step from selecting size, cutting each pattern piece and fabric, sewing each option and tips along the way were all included in a nice, organized way. I often found myself jumping to the Table of Contents and back to the tutorial to skip between the parts I wanted to skip over. My daughter loves her new dress and I love a new great summer staple!
