The Cocoon Dress is AMAZING. It is a quick easy sew that can be made with or without pockets (my girl loves her some pockets). And can we talk about the exposed zipper? I love it! Due to the shape it is best suited for heavier fabrics. I used a thick tweed that was $49.99 a yard...I know you think I'm nuts right...well I'm not. It was $49.99 on clearance for $24.99 and 50% off that. Yes, $12 and since I was testing a 2T I only needed 3/4 of a yard, so this baby cost me $8. Call me crazy but this dress looks like it could've come from a high end boutique right? Or am I just bias? Either way, I'm in love with it and anytime my girls can look fabulous for $8 I'm a happy woman!
I tested the 2T for my girl. She is about 30lbs and tall for her age (36 ish inches). This size fits her like a glove. I currently have this same dress in a sweat shirt material dress cut for her it's just in line behind another pattern I'm testing and maybe even a project for Mommy! I can't wait to sew one of these for my big girl. I'm looking into adding sleeves to pair with tights or leggings in cooler weather.
