I completed the Sunki dress and is it me, or does it make you think of Jackie O? I love the gold tulips on the inky blue background. It shimmers gloriously and if the dress weren’t pint-sized, it threatens to look like something you’d find in your stylish grandmother’s closet. I was going to go with a more youthful mustard-y yellow polka dot fabric, but I didn’t have nearly enough of the material…but I’m glad I went with this glamorous piece instead. Both the pattern and fabric are from the coolest little new fabric shop, Dry Goods Design.
The pattern is well-drafted, but I had some challenges with the instructions. I had to read through them a gazillion times before I got the gist of things, but it’s all cleverly put together. Also, I might have been slow and foggy from this cold that I seem to have suddenly developed.
Some detail shots:
Wishing you a lovely weekend! I am going to go snuggle up in a warm blanket and drink lots of herbal tea…oh, and here’s a drawing by K because she said this, “Will you download this to your website, mommy. I drew it really good.”

gorgeous! and gorgeous fabric! the directions in figgy’s patterns are so minimal that they can be hard to understand. I made a sunki dress this week too and had to look up how other people made it.
could you add your photos to the flickr pool? they are just so lovely!
Thanks Meg! I added images to the flickr pool – am having so much fun with KCWC, thanks for organizing it!
THis is so very very wonderful!
Thanks so much Shelly – I love the pattern!
I’ve just finished exactly the same dress in the same fabric! I live in France. I will post it on my blog on sunday.
I’m glad to meet you in a so funny way.
What a lovely coincidence! I got the fabric on sale and had just enough to make that dress and a matching tiny pouch. Looking forward to seeing your post!
