… a little bit of dirt never hurt anyone. If you ask S, the dresses are nicer to wear, since they are not as tight as regular trousers/pants. Unless we are on our way to a special occasion, I never forbid my kids from playing in the fear of them ruining their clothes. The clothes should never be considered too fine to play in! The only thing I beg from my daughter is not to drag her feet with the ride-on scooter. The previous pair of trainers only lasted for a month!
Here are some of the simpler play dresses I made for S. The pattern for the pink and the blue dress is Sally from Very Shannon. I like the simplicity of the dress and the square neckline and the big pockets add nice charm to it.
The third dress is Hollywood Cerise from Ottobre Design 3/2012. I like the dress but the photo does not really do it justice.
