Let’s Go Fly A Kite

This mix & match entry combines the Ileana and Louisa patterns. 

The kites in the fabric give the dress a Mary Poppins feeling and the pinwheels add a playful touch.  Eva loved playing with the real-life pinwheels. To make the dress more glamorous, I added gold piping to the pocket and sleeves, along with a golden zipper and buttons with a golden edge. 

I couldn’t resist adding one more special decoration in the way of a bow, which was then reflected in Eva’s hairstyle :)  I enjoyed this challenge of mixing up the patterns. I look forward to more projects of this sort.
