The Antalya Dress and City Gym Shorts

Hello! Have you guys seen the previews of newest collection from Willow and Co. Patterns? Today the first pattern is available and it's the Antalya Dress, designed by Olga Becker of Kid Approved, and this pattern is so unique and adorable.

I was able to test this pattern and made the button back version and there is also an exposed zipper version. I love the front gathers so much and M is pretty smitten with this dress! 

The first version of the dress ended up being a little short (that has been fixed in multiple rounds of testing as well as a few other minor things) so I made a matching pair of shorts using the free City Gym Shorts pattern from Purl Soho. How adorable are these? They were a quick sew, especially when using store bought bias tape.

This is gorgeous!!! I love the Cotton + Steel for this dress. And the shorts are adorable. I can totally imagine she'll one day tell her kids "my mom sewed all my clothes -she even sewed MATCHING SHORTS to go under my dresses!" :-)
