Dorset Dress by Heidi & Finn

I had the pleasure of being able to test the Dorset dress for Heidi & Finn.  Like all of her patterns this dress came together easily with a beautiful way of constructing.

The Dorset dress is an A-line dress with flutter sleeves and button tabs on the sides.  It buttons in the back with a placket that is well explained in the pattern.  The flutter sleeves add just the perfect girly touch and the button tabs are perfect for adding piping like I did or showcasing some fun buttons.
  My daughter is obsessed with "paw print" fabric and chose the leopard print fabric.  It's a fine wale corduroy which worked well although the dress could be made out of something with more drape giving it a different look.  This dress is perfect for school and can easily be layered with a long sleeve shirt to transition into the colder months.
