Popolok Design Cece Dress

Earlier this month I was contacted by Popolok Design asking me to test their newest pattern the Cece Top and Dress.  It is a really cute pattern for a peplum shirt with the option to have a peter pan collar, sleeves or made into a dress.  It has a wide range of sizes (ages 1-8) so it can be used a number of times.

I love how this dress turned out!  I had the worst time convincing myself to use my Robert Kaufman Girlfriends fabric, but I'm so glad I did (and I have about half a yard left so I can use it again).  The mermaids are just way too cute.

The pattern was really easy to use.  I just suggest reading through the whole thing first to make sure you aren't doing something that will prevent you from adding sleeves or collar, if you want them, like I did and had to seam rip.  Something I did learn was that if you are going to do an invisible zipper, you need an invisible zipper foot.  I was able to do some finagling with the fabric and top-stitching to finally make it invisible.

You can't tell it by the pictures, but Eleanor really did love the dress.  I love the vintage feel it has.

Popolok Design have a lot of really cute patterns.  So you should check them out here and you can get this pattern here.
