A new party dress
A new easter decor calls for a new easter party dress!
Ever since I used part of The Cottage Mama’s Party dress pattern for this dress for the bubble dress challenge I was looking for an opportunity to make a party dress for our little girl.
I already had some checkered fabric ready for the dress when I came across this fabric. I fell straight in love with it and decided to go with it although it was a bit stiff. All i could think was: “But how cute would this cupcake fabric be for a dress for our little cupcake?”
You should check out The Cottage Mama facebook group to see what an amazing variety of dresses are made based on the party dress pattern. I added a zipper in the back instead of the buttonloops. It is a fully lined bodice so it was a bit of a puzzle to find out what could be sewn before turning it. I ended up sewing the zipper to one side of the back and then turning it right side out. After that I pinned the other side of the zipper to the other side of the bodice. Like I said it was quit a puzzle. But luckily I got through it without having to rip out any seams.
I made a size 2 dress. Because this is still a bit to big I didn’t put the contrasting band on the bottom of the dress. I recon I can still attach it if she has totally grown into it.
I still have some of the fabric left so I think I will make an apron soon.
