Summer Cotton Twill Dress

By Trudy Horne

What could be more perfect than a dress where you can change the bow every time it is worn? Nothing!

Cotton twill is an ideal fabric for children’s wear, especially in the summer. Cotton makes it comfortable while twill’s subtle diagonal weave provides greater durability and resistance to wrinkling. Start with a simple jumper made in one of the coastal sunset inspired hues. Add a hem ruffle and coordinating shoulder ribbons, and the result is a charming outfit equally suitable for skipping along the beach or posing for a studio portrait. Choose one of the fabric and ribbon combinations offered, or let your own color preferences, style and creative ideas guide you.
