Hi to everyone visiting my blog! Thanks for coming over!
I had pictures scheduled this morning for the kids and had imagined my daughter wearing a dress I had made. I have also been putting this off all summer because I didn't know what kind of dress to make.
Now that summer is practically over, I wasn't even sure if I should do a sundress. But the ladies at Project Run & Play made their first round of the competition sound so fun. Deciding on a dress got easier. I'd just buckle down and sew the adorable (and quick) Popover Sundress by Oliver + S.Now here's an admission: I'm a newby to ruffles. But upon scanning the O+S Flickr pool, I quickly became enamored by this dress and wanted to make some ruffles for my little dress too. They're O-K. I think I can do better next time. The red fabric ended up being on the thicker side and caused me a little trouble around ten o'clock last night. But I didn't give up and toiled away until the dress was finished (around 11).
And I have to say, I love it! So unless my little ruffle counts, I didn't really "remix" this dress, but I'm still happy to be part of the lovely set of examples at PR&R.
Supplies: Red fabric and flower fabric were both from yard sales.
The while fabric is Kona bone (I think).
Knitted hair bows by moi.
Additional Notes: For my tall 3-year-old, I cut the size 5 pattern, but shortened it to the size 3 length (I like knees).
Also going to link up with some of these parties. Wahoo!
