Kimono Dress

So I mentioned this book "Sweet Booties" by Valerie Van Shrader a alittle while ago and also said that I will be making more stuff out of this book.
Here's one of those:

In this dress I followed the pattern almost exactly, which is rare, and it fit my little one really well.
I like that Kimono Dresses are very flexible fit meaning they get used for a longer duration than other woven clothes, because the way they are closed with a tie in front, ensures that even if the child grows
 you can always tie it a little loose. It will still work well. Also if they get too short in length, they can be used as tops. I love clothes like these for growing kids.
