This adorable little ray of sunshine (camouflaged as a parking bollard) is my tester version of the Mini Colfax Dress a great summer dress patter just released by True Bias. Just like the (not Mini) Colfax Dress this design features a slit yoke at the neck, visible arm and neck binding, and a faced hem. I made View A, View B also includes some very clever patch pockets. The Mini Colfax is a satisfyingly quick sew, a refreshingly small PDF, and I imagine the color blocking potential will make this a popular style for the junior set.
The fabric is from a vintage piece gifted to my stash from my mother-in-law's stash. I imagine it was purchased for Great Great Grandmom's kitchen curtains, but I think it works well as a dress. Its light weight cotton with a two tone flower pattern that is almost embossed into the fabric (is that possible?). Yellow is not a common color in our wardrobe, so I decided to really own it with a yellow cotton lawn that is not vintage but also from my stash.
