Roxy & Katrin

Mollie in the Katrin by Mamu Designs.

Katrin tunic/dress
I made a size 116/122. It is more like a tunic length on Moo. She's about 120cm tall. I should have measured and lengthened the pattern a bit as I intended it to be a dress. The pattern went together easily, but the directions were pretty vague. Luckily I've made a similar style before. I used a rib knit for the dress, so I stabilised the bottom edge of the bodice, so it wouldn't end up stretching out of shape. Moo likes it, so it can get a tick.

But Moo really likes the Farbenmix Roxy and so do I.

Because my girl is growing like a weed, I thought i would make a size 122/128, but based on the fit, I think a 110/116 would have been fine. I used some cotton jersey that I bought on clearance at Spotlight. I also used FOE for the first time.

I think I didn't stretch it enough as I put it on. But on the other hand it could be because of the size.

I used some ruffly elastic from my stash on the sleeve edges. Mollie loves it.

The bottom of the dress was finished in ric rac that is the same colour as the FOE on the neck.

I am definitely going to make Roxy again. Next one will probably be in a woven.

Love the colours and style, as usual! I guess it helps having a daughter who actually looks like a model to show off the clothes you make!

Oh! I love the second Roxy dress! So pretty! You just inspired me to purchase that pattern! Thank you!
