Unicorns & Pom-Poms || A Homemade Dress

One of the things that I’ll certainly remember about Lucia’s fifth year of life is her love of drawing.  Most days typically begin and end with art – and this past year was filled with mountains of unicorn and pony creations.

More masterpieces that I know what to do with…

Her creativity inspired me to whip up a homemade unicorn themed dress.  I was on the hunt for the perfect fabric for quite some time and fell in love with this print by Pond Ripple on Spoonflower.  The pattern is a hacked up version of Mary Abreu’s Classic Peasant Top pattern from her book Little Girls Big Style.  I love the simple look of dress-tunics on Lucia and began sewing them for her a few years ago.  I decided to add our signature Pom-Pom trim because Pom-Poms make everything a bit more fun!


Although unicorns are now often replaced with girl-ninja sketches (how cool is that?!) – Lucia enjoyed wearing this little dress on our recent vacation to Florida.

I think It’s perfect for spring and ponying around!
