Rainbow Pleat Dress

You guys!

I MADE this!

Rainbow Pleat Dress - front

Completely inspired by this look by Jennifer Lake

While trying to find/decide on a spring/Easter dress for MyChild, I found this pattern on UpCraftClub

And knew exactly what I wanted to do.

I used linen or linen-like material for the whole thing. It is so soft and light, MyChild loves it.

And!

It has pockets!

Rainbow Pleat Dress - back

Right now, we (meaning MyChild) are in our rainbow and unicorns phase, so I knew she’d like the overall look. I also used a rainbow zipper and rainbow thread for the finishing look:

Overall, the pattern was SUPER easy and quick to make, even with the extra maths I created for myself by adding in the separate pieces/colors for the pleats. #worthit

If you like to sew clothing, I highly recommend looking into UpCraftClub – they have all types of patterns, that are quite inexpensive.
