While I know my daughter doesn't need anymore clothes I couldn't help but make one of these cute dresses, so I did so with the idea of making it for a local Mother's of Preschoolers group for their Silent Auction.
I had a bunch of fall florals in the basement that I got in a box of quilt fabric off of Craig's List. I paired it with some textured fabric I had gotten at Savers a year or two ago and some brown poly scraps I got in a fabric bag at a rummage this summer. This makes this dress almost totally made of second hand and upcycled materials, minus the thread. What do you think?
I sewed the stripped florals together to make a nice panel for the middle section. I did this mainly because I couldn't decide what to use in the middle and figured best to go with all three.
I am happy with how it turned out. Yet didn't get to finish it all the way. I broke my last needle. So all you get for now is these happy little snapshots.
It ended up being a size 3T-4T I am thinking I am going to have to make another in a smaller size. I am hoping I can go a little more funky with the colors. Maybe pink, blue, red and green like the Love Bug Dress. Just have to look though my scraps and get a new needle for my machine. :)
Had to link to Paisley Passions since I used a Paisley print. hehehe.
