Last week I shared my Colfax Dress with you, and this week I have a mini version for Sweet Pea!  Kelli of True Bias just released the mini colfax dress pattern yesterday and it is just as good as the adult version!

This is the tester version that I sewed for my girl, and again (just like the adult one) I have another dress planned to sew up from the pattern!

I sewed up the min colfax in this cute rayon print fabric that I grabbed from the indiesew shop (no longer available).  I let Sweet Pea decide what fabric she wanted me to make her dress out of and of course she grabbed this cute lovebird fabric.

I sewed version A because I couldn’t imagine using a contrast print with this fabric and covering up any of those cute birds.  I have the tiniest piece of this fabric leftover and I’m hoping it’s enough to squeak something out for myself!

One more shot of the yoke detail on the dress, because that is definitely my favorite detail!

Quick Glimpse

Size:  10

Changes Made:  I lengthened the pattern 3 inches (Sweet Pea is tall and slim, so definitely needed the extra length)

    Love this mini pattern !! Did you find the sizing “true to size” even though you lengthened for Sweet Pea? The style really suits her by the way and gorgeous fabric!!

  • Very sweet!
