Last night I made this cute little dress for Naomi.
You are impressed, right?
Don't be: You can buy fabric that is already hemmed at the bottom, and smocked at the top. The majority of the work is done for you! I picked this fabric up at Joann Fabrics. Well, I should say that Naomi picked out this fabric :) She's been Disney crazy ever since we returned from our hols there.
Not only was the dress super easy, it was also inexpensive. The fabric was $5, after applying one of the 50% Joann Fabric coupons. As for the ribbon and rose, I'm a little embarressed to admit that they came off a box of chocs that Joe had bought for me ages ago. They were simply too nice to throw away. I was happy to put them to good use on this dress. :)
So, all I needed to do was seam up the back of the fabric, using a french seam for a nice neat finish. And then stitch the ribbon straps to the inside front of the dress so that they could be tied halter-style around the back of her neck. And as Naomi would say 'Ta-daaaa!'.
Hope you are having a good weekend,
