Mouse Madness Knot Dress

Since there are only 10 hours left to link up to the Project Run and Play Knot Dress Challenge and my granddaughter is off to see her father this weekend, I don't have a model to show off her new dress that I just completed.

I designed it to be a simple, comfortable ... yet more grown-up dress.
I changed the straps and made the back strap longer and the front strap shorter. Then I overlapped the back over the front and sewed on a button through both layers. Lastly, I tied a knot in the longer back strap.

The fabric used in the dress is a Riley Blake knit. I use Riley Blake knits a lot because they are such a nice quality and a reasonable price. I want fabrics that will wear and launder well.

 


The short woven crop jacket features a Mickey and Minnie Mouse black and white cartoon with a sprinkling of red.


When she put it on originally for a fitting, she broke out dancing in  
HIP-HOP style... 
so I think she likes it.

Smiles,
Deborah

  4. Would you mind telling me where you got the Mickey cartoon fabric? My granddaughter had some knit leggings made with similar fabric like that and she outgrew them. Been looking for some similar fabric ever since.

    1. Dear Anne, Remember that the Mickey cartoon fabric is a woven cotton. I bought it at fabric.com. Here is the link https://www.fabric.com/buy/0377446/disney-mickey-vintage-mickey-minnie-all-over-the-news-white

    1. I've noticed your kind comments on each of my submissions to the Project Run and Play. I thank you for taking the time to comment, and connect with me. I don't have any local friends that sew, so I really enjoy sharing with my blog friends,
      Deborah
