Color Explosion Knot Dress

Color Explosion !

I really enjoyed creating this colorful, 
ribbon-trimmed dress beginning with the Knot Dress Pattern from the blog, Me Sew Crazy, for the Sew-Along Pattern on Project Run and Play.

 Notice the box pleated lower skirt and the flat yoke on the top of the skirt. I substituted the flat yoke for the gathered skirt because I wanted the pleats to EXPLODE at the bottom.



 I used 4 different fabrics and 5 different woven ribbons.




  I polka-dotted like crazy.

The fabrics used are
 a floral polished cotton and patterned woven cottons.

Most importantly... my Granddaughter loves it.
Her sister made her a construction paper medal that says, " You Win. U.S.A."

  2. I love the bodice with the stripes and the polka dots, and the contrast fabric in the box pleats is perfect.

    1. Sabrina,
      I can spend hours in a fabric store just drooling over the fabric and putting combinations together. I'm head-over-heels when I plan ribbon and trim combinations. Thanks for your comment.

  3. This is just fantastic. I haven't started on getting my daughter's ready but a pleated skirt like this was something I'd been considering. It looks fabulous!
