I hereby dub this dress the “Pumpkin Dress”. So fall-ish! I got this fabric on sale awhile ago at Joann’s (on my trip to Utah earlier this year), and have been saving it for the “perfect” dress.
I do that sometimes…and then two years later I will still have a piece waiting…oh well. Someday all my fabric will get used. It may be by my grandchildren…but hey-at least it wasn’t wasted. heh heh.
I just know I’m going to be that crazy old lady with buckets of fabric sitting in her attic.
Sadie loves it. She saw it hanging on the wall and said “ME MINE ME MINE” and started ripping her clothes off to try it on. She loves everything I make her these days. (BIG happy grin from me)
She’d love it even if it had lobsters or something ridiculous on the fabric. She’d think it was Sebastian from the Little Mermaid and start doing the pinchy fingers. and then singing Under the Sea….
I made my own pattern for this one-the sleeves were really the only “new” thing on the dress-and I love em! They’re really easy too.
It’s very mod fabric so I wanted to make a really simple dress.
p.s. My felt food tutorials were featured on Sew, Mama, Sew the other day!
