DIY Pom Pom Dress || Kids Clothes Week

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.
