The final garment I sewed for the Project Nature Adventure collection is a Risu Dress using Tide Pools double brushed poly fabric. This fun combination creates a really cute dress.
Before I used my good fabric, I had to test this pattern with some scrap fabric. I grabbed some double brushed poly from the stash, and sewed up a sample Risu Dress. These is a really fun pattern with a faux cross back. The construction isn’t very complicated, but I wanted to make sure I did it at least once first.
This navy blue Risu Dress turned out so adorable, I pretty much want to make all her clothes navy blue! It’d probably be weird for her to have a whole closet full of navy blue Risu Dresses, though, right?
The Risu Dress can be made in 15 sizes from 12M to 14…so since I sewed the 18M size for her, expect to see these in her wardrobe for a looooong time! This pattern has illustrations with an occasional photo where needed to add extra help.
After I was confident in my ability to contract the Risu Dress, I pulled out the Tide Pools fabric from the Project Nature Adventure collection. This is much better quality than the scrap fabric I sewed the 1st one with! Plus the tide pool block print just sings with happiness.
For the trim on this second Risu Dress, I used a rayon jersey in the same light pink shade as in some of the tide pools. It’s such a fun combination for a girl. However the fabric would work nicely for a boy too, with the light green accented.
