Hey June Kensington dress

Hey June Kensington dress


Proving that a sewing project doesn’t have to be complicated to tick all the boxes; the Kensington Dress by Hey June Patterns is as close to a perfect ‘everyday’ girls dress as you can get. Covering an age range of 18 mths to 10 years with optional neck placket or as a simple pullover and with two sleeve variations, this pattern will work year round. For years. It also comes as a tee.

You can find the pattern HERE.

I made the long sleeve version so as to carry my Pixie Princess through the winter months. The sleeve tabs are actually her favourite feature of the dress:

The long sleeve button tab

I made it in an absolutely gorgeous hearts and stars jersey fabric from Minerva Crafts in the pink marl colourway and it’s beautifully soft and cooperative. Head over to the Minerva Craft Blogger Network to read my post all about it HERE including the links to the fabric and notions I used. It basically reads as ‘me V supermarket buying’…

How’s cute is too cute!?

This was my first make in my new ‘bijou’ sewing room setup … it was a joy from start to finish. And a big thank you to Becca of redwsews for introducing me to the Kensington dress! It was also my intro to Hey June Patterns – and I’ve just ordered the supplies to make a version of their Halifax Hoodie for myself which I’m really excited about – it’s going to be navy and … gold!

Until next time,

    What an adorable dress! And another thing: Would you like to answer my 10 questions challenge: https://withmyhandsdream.com/2017/12/30/10-questions-challenge/ I made the questions after spending so much time thinking about my hobby, what I have made along the years and what my plans are for the next year.

    Absolutely adorable – PP and the dress. Did she enjoy modelling this one, she is becoming quite professional. Much better than me! xxxx

    What a sweet dress. It does look like a perfect dress for every day play, and a tee also for that matter 🙂 I just bought this pattern a couple of weeks ago and I am itching to sew it, the view with the placket!

    Oh my gosh, Sarah! The dress looks amazing on her and she is so adorable! Don’t mind me if I end up making an identical one for myself…


  5. She looks so cute Sarah! I have used this pattern several times too, though I have now shortened the neckband as I found it gaped a little. The sleeve tabs look fabulous (I haven’t used those yet, or the placket, as my little girl has a rabid dislike of buttons!) The Halifax hoodie is a great pattern, you will love it. I wear my two round the house all the time. Navy and gold sounds like a winning combination to me! xxx

  7. Lovely dress Sarah!
