We interviewed Naomi about her creation:
Kokka Fabric (KF): What did you think of the fabric you used for this project?
Soft color tones and print design make a perfect combination for kid’s clothing. Utilizing the double gauze’s texture and the look of the pattern, I came up with a dress with a sense of fluffiness. The butterflies in the lamé print design is also lovely.

KF: Can you tell us any special elements or ideas that you incorporated into this creation?
The dress in double gauze fabric keep you cool in summer. For fall and winter, it also keeps you warm as the fabric absorbs air. Since it is sleeveless, it can be layered casually with a cardigan. The loose body line allows kids to wear it for a longer season, as a dress in summer and later as a tunic for cooler weather.

KF: What are some tips for making this dress?
For a clean finish, please use a stiletto as you create the gathering for alignment.
The armhole may be a little tricky to sew. Make sure you iron to score the fabric beforehand.

KF: How should we incorporate this dress into one’s styling?
Add the ribbon made with a remnant to a pair of sandals or a basket bag. It will make a nice addition to a lovely summer outing style. For a different look, pair it with a bright color cardigan and a pair of jeans underneath.

KF:Thank you very much, Naomi. Here are sewing instructions along with step by step photos from her. Enjoy crafting!
