Kid’s Clothes Week Project One Paris Dress

I am excited that Kid's Clothes Week is here! kid's clothes week

I managed to do some planning and cutting last week so hopefully I will have a productive week! 

The day that the traveling theme was announced I was shopping in Jo-Ann and came across this fun
Eiffel Tower fabric.  I thought it would make a fun dress for Miss Ladybug.  It matched the theme so nicely that I couldn't leave it behind.  I whipped up a quick Butterick 5776.  To make sure that it would be short enough to be a good play dress for Ladybug I cut the size five but shortened it to the size three dress length.  I didn't add the elastic to the sleeves because I love flutter sleeve look I get when I leave the elastic out. While I love the fabric the dress was a bit plain without any embellishment so I opted to finish the hem with some pink bias tape. 

Hopefully the sun will come out later in the week so I can get some better pictures! Ladybug's mom likes this style of dress for play.  Anybody have any other ideas of dresses that are nice for the active preschool set?

  1. Cute dress! I thought about getting the Eiffel Tower fabric for KCW too, since Paris is our dream travel destination. In the end I did not, but looking at your dress makes me want to go get the fabric again ;)
