.Perfect Pattern Parcel #5: Sunki Dress.

I remember when the Sunki Dress was first released by Figgy's and started popped up around blogland that I thought it was pretty cute so I decided to sew up another pattern from the Perfect Pattern Parcel #5 to try it out.
I bought a whole heap of this lightweight spotty denim from Spotlight awhile ago and thought that it would work well with this dress design.

The dress appears quite fussless at first glance but does have some lovely features like these great pockets created from side panels - although I did find them a bit confusing to insert, but fumbled my way there in the end.
And I really like the overlapped shoulder detail. The sleeves are pleated at the top to create a puffy look. I feel like the dress is a little too wide on Lil though, I don't think I could go down a size as it fits quite well around the waist but I would definitley think about leaving out the puff on the shoulders or slimming down the neckline or sleeves a bit so that it doesn't look so big across the top of her body.
The back of the dress is finished off with a zipper which makes dressing nice and easy.
If you like these patterns and love getting a good deal, then make sure you check out the Perfect Pattern Parcel #5. This pattern bundle is made for girls with a huge range in sizes and you get to pick your own price! But don't miss out because it will be gone in just under 2 days!

How Pattern Parcel Works:
Here at Perfect Pattern Parcel, we believe in supporting independent pattern designers. It’s our opinion that indie patterns are just, well, better than big box patterns, and we’re pretty sure our customers think so too. So, we allow customers to show their support in naming their own price for each Parcel.  We also encourage customers to allocate part of their Parcel price to the charity in order to help classrooms in need. Pattern Parcel donates all profits after expenses from Parcel sales to the charity as well. Together we've raised over $11,000 for classrooms in need!

That is a great fabric for this dress. And I agree, the overlapping shoulder detail is nice. (I liked it so much I may have a pattern in #6 with it!) Woops!
