Sometimes you have these patterns, every time you see them you feel the love and feel like you should sew that pattern. That is how I felt with the Cozy Dress by Made by Runi. Every single version I saw I just loved. If you feel the same, now is your chance to get the Cozy Dress with a discount because it is pattern of the week!\
The best part about this dress is that it is a quick sew with a great result! It has dolman sleeves, so you basically have 4 pattern pieces for the whole dress! I love the shorter front and longer back, such a cute detail. And the cowl, I love cowls on dresses, unfortunately our girls are not always a fan of cowls. Luckily our middle daughter just loves everything I sew for her and isn’t too picky about the pattern so I sewed it for her. Our eldest would miss the twirl factor of the skirt.
I added about 2 centimeters in width to the cowl because our girl doesn’t like fabric to be too close to her neck. I also added 1,5 cm to the length of the skirt so she can wear the dress longer (hopefully). I also added a piece of fabric between the upper and lower part of the dress, which gives a nice pop of colour!
