I left off the pockets just to keep the dress more basic. I'm usually drawn to basic and clean clothes, and tend to simplify a lot of patterns. I did include them on my first Ice Cress Dress, and I considered putting them on this one in yellow for a moment, but I'm glad I left them out.
I will say with this bold chrysanthemum print I do sort of see a muu muu house dress trying to escape, but I'm okay with that! :) Comfort is very important in her wardrobe.
However, I am having trouble getting her to wear this now that "green day" is over. She always complains that her hair gets caught in the button on the back. Does anyone have any suggestions for how to avoid that? I have tried braiding her hair on days she wears this style of dress but she can still get some hair caught. It really drives her crazy! :)
We are going to enjoy these next few days around here. It is suppose to get very cool by next weekend. And while I am ready for some brisk fall weather; I always know that means winter is coming and I would rather it stayed away. I like green grass too much! Green is my favorite color!
