This is my ninth Roller Skate dress, but only the first time I have put the cute little ribbon on the front, can you believe that? Huh! I have added a belt, turned it in to a maxi dress, added trim, appliqued and even made it as is a few times;) Well, I realized pretty soon why I haven't put it on (at least for the twins) as Elizabeth has been pulling it undone all day! Guess I should tie it then tack it down? (Oh, and if you are interested in the other 8 dresses/tops click here)
I have been good at not buying fabric lately, but this one got me. I went to the shop intending to buy strap adjusters for four messenger bags from Little Things to Sew, but they were out! So I wandered over to the super soft, super inexpensive gingham when inspiration struck. I remembered Nicole's cute b/w gingham Souvenir Top (doesn't it look fab on her?) and her b/w gingham pillows. I turned around (because gingham is on the same aisle as the trims) and found turquoise bobbles and the exact same shade of turquoise ribbon. It was fate, I just had to make a dress. And as a testament to their great price on ginghams, the whole dress, trims included, cost just over $5- because I chose to line it with the main fabric.
This is a size 18m with just a little extra length. My sweet little model was less than cooperative, but whaddya gonna do?
I still need to heat seal the ribbon. Girlfriend reaaally liked to pull on the bow!
I found a turquoise button in my stash, perfect! See? Told you it was meant to be.
This was her yelling at me "no more cheese!" Okay Izzlebit, no more cheese.
