another dress from a skirt!

You may remember my post about the "2nd easiest dress you'll ever make"
if not, take a second and go see it.
Well, I made another one...and I've got another goodwill skirt
just waiting to be made into a third dress!

Again, this dress is inspired by V and Co.'s dress
but this time I changed it up a bit.

Instead of taking fabric from both sides and putting the zipper in the back,
I kept the zipper on the side and just took fabric from one side.
I used the length of the fabric that I cut off to make the straps,
but instead of sewing them into actual straps,
I left them long to just tie behind her neck.
This dress will grow with Naomi and she'll be able to
wear it for quite a while!!

I know the back seam is off center but I don't really care!

She's such a poser!

She called this her "bride" pose!

She loves this dress and says that she feels like a princess.
Well, that just made my day.

I'm linking up!
make it wear it

That is so beautiful Jamie! I am excited that my friend is coming over next week for my first sewing lesson. We are going to make a bandana beach quilt. I told her I was going to be taking pictures and blogging along and she said to be sure I talk about the wonders of a rotary cutter. :)

By the way Naomi makes a gorgeous model!

Thank you Jamie for the sweet comment on my cakes! I actually just bought a pack of round cardboard cake bottoms at Hobby Lobby - then just covered them. Haven't shipped any yet - I have just googled to see the best ways!

Awesome! I have some skirts that I can't wear (too big or too small) so maybe I can make them into dresses! great idea!
