For week #2 the theme is Stripes and Polkadots. This one was probably my biggest challenge coming up with. I don't have many polkadotted or stripey fabrics and I had decided before starting this that I would only use fabric I have and not buy any new fabric. How many different fabrics were in my stash that fit the bill? 3 stripey ones and 3 polkadotted ones. They really didn't match each other at all either. After realizing that I had some flower fabric that matched the plain black and white polkadot fabric and had green in it, I made a plan. Here's what I came up with:
I named it the Butterfly Bubble dress and since I made up the pattern, I can do a tutorial for it! :D
I love that since it has so many colors I can still mix and match, so for right now while there is over a foot of snow outside, I can add a shirt and some leggings underneath. If you can't tell, I LOVE to layer. My mother used to call me the "Bag Lady" cause I would come out in multiple layers whenever I got to dress myself.:D
Then in the summer time she can wear it alone.
I love this kids doodles!
Here's the front:

Then the back:
It is fully lined and I think it turned out rather well.
I also love that my older daughter Aevarie can wear it as a tunic! :D
Yeah, my kids love to move, and jumping on the bed makes them happier models! :D
