As I was looking through my pictures this evening I came upon this little dress. I made it back in August for my Etsy Shop, but with all the baby excitement and a visit with my grandmother, I completely forgot to post about it. I think it is adorable, but then I could be just a little biased! It sort of yells ‘SUMMER’, doesn’t it? It was so easy to make,and I’m sure I’ll make loads more for MacKensie as she grows.
I didn’t think to take pictures of the process, but it is pretty self explanatory. A regular tank top is layered with ruffles to make a dress for a toddler, or a top for an older child. The fabric is a fun baseball-esque print cotton. I sewed the flower to a pin back, making it easier to wash, or even wear on another outfit.
I love adding fabric flowers to my projects. They just seem to add that extra little personal touch to any outfit. I’ve been scouring the internet for more tutorials, looking for as many different ones as I can. These are a few of my favourites.
This is a Russian site, with links to several Kanzashi tutorials.
‘Anna’s Flower’ from Sew Ritzy Titzy
And these beautiful ribbon Peonies from Make It Do.
There are literally dozen’s of tutorial’s to be found. The hardest part is deciding what to make first!
Join me for a party!
