The Ishi Dress - or the 'Who let the dogs out?' dress.

My Belgian friend An of Straight Grain designs the most gorgeous patterns for girl's clothes - oh, and a  (unisex) sleep sack for babies.

Her latest pattern is for the Ishi Dress and today I'm participating in her Ishi Dress Blog Tour.

The Ishi is a princess seamed a-line dress with two big pockets placed on the side panels of the dress.

I know a girl who loooooves big pockets. The same girl also happens to love almost every single animal on this planet. Well, not spiders. But rabbits, cats - whales (but why?) and of course dogs. Such a shame that the only animals we have in our home are spiders, flies and sometimes ants.

When I first showed her this fabric she immediately begged for a dress. About the same I got the fabric, An invited me the on the blog tour. Perfect.

Don't let all the fine details on the Ishi scare you. It's actually a pretty fast make and because of An's very detailed instructions the dress is not that difficult to construct. Such a beautiful and great fitting dress. I could have gone down a size for Wilma. She's tall but slender. I made her a size 9 with no alterations.

The lovely Japanese fabric is from Stofdepotet. 

And yes, I bribed her and documented it!!

Thanks so much for inviting me, An - it's been a great pleasure.
