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
so I think she likes it.
