Hooded Lace Sunki Dress for Perfect Pattern Parcel #5

I am so happy to be a part of Perfect Pattern Parcel’s tour today and sharing my version of this bundle’s Bonus Pattern.  I’m almost as happy as my little leaf-cruncher below.

This Sunki Dress is one of six patterns that are a part of Perfect Pattern Parcel’s recent bundle.
Have you heard of Perfect Pattern Parcel?  I wrote about them when they had a women’s bundle and I did some sewing for myself here, here, and here, and again earlier this month when I made some things for Jayce here and here, and now some autumn sewing for Hannah!
Pattern Parcel #5: Choose your own price and support DonorsChoose. Win/win
Perfect Pattern Parcel is an incredible idea and I love being able to support them and show off a few of the designs that are a part of their bundle.  The collection gives you an a group of patterns that compliment one another to fill your little lady’s wardrobe, but PPP donates 100% of all profits to Donors Choose, an organization that provides for classrooms in need.  The patterns are offered at a discount from what you would pay if you purchased each one individually, you choose the price that you pay for the bundle, your purchase supports the designers behind these small businesses, AND ALL PROFITS go to CHARITY!  It’s a complete win-win situation.
The bundle is only available for a limited amount of time and that time is almost up, so grab it quick!!
This pattern is for girls and covers a HUGE size range, from little ladies to early teens.  Check out the bundle to see the sizes here.

The bonus pattern is the darling Sunki Dress which has been on my to-make list for over a year now.  Hannah has a slew of dresses from my summer sewing, so I thought she could use something a bit more comfy and warm as we head into the cooler months.  The pattern calls for a woven material but instead I decided to try out a soft gray knit.

Since I was using knit I sized down and omitted the back closure completely.  Also, because I never seem to be able to spread a pattern out in front of me without getting (potentially) too many ideas, I added a lace overlay to the middle piece, dark chambray piping around the pockets, and changed the sleeves to a more traditional puff sleeve instead of overlapping tulip-type shoulders.

Oh yeah.  And I added a hood.

I used the neckline and hood option from my beloved favorite fall pattern from last year (for him and her), the Bimaa Sweater.

I just love this dress!! I had thought that the addition of the hood and the knit material would make it more casual, but I might have sabotaged that by adding the lace which I think bumped it right back up to dressy-ish.  Right?  Or semi-dressy?  But it’s still casual enough that she could wear it with jeans or jeggings so I’m happy with it.

  1. love, love, love this! Sunki in knit? Brilliant! Adding a hood? Even more brilliant! I have this pattern . . . now I totally want to make this for my daughter:) Hope you enjoy seeing her look so adorable in it this fall/winter!

  2. This is seriously the sweetest little dress. I especially love the piping. The lace fabric looks exactly like some I got recently from Girl Charlee. It wasn't quite what I expected when it arrived and I wasn't sure how to use it, so thanks for giving me some ideas!
