Listening to the urge to create is always a positive thing. I’m happy that my sewing machine came out this week to make a sweet little dress for my best girl. I didn’t follow a pattern and structured the dress with ample room to stretch a few seasons. This one was a fairly simply sew with black knit fabric from my stash and glorious rainbow pom pom trim that I’ve been hoarding for quite some time. After forming the dress, I stitched elastic casing on top and decided to add thin elastic under the chest for a fitted look. The minimal central ruffle didn’t work out the way that I envisioned but lucky the dress structure was pretty forgiving. The rainbow pom straps stitched over think black elastic are my favorite part – and I image that the matching pom pom necklace will add a fun touch to many different outfits.
Thanks to Kids Clothes Week for the encouragement – I was excited to see one of my dresses featured on their summer inspiration post.
Pom poms forever!
