Ok, I wasn't going to post about this until I finished both girls' dresses, but yikes, how cute is this?
Yep, I made a candy corn dress. You know, so she can wear it for the next couple of weeks until Halloween. Impractical, I know, but I just couldn't get it out of my head that the girls needed matching candy corn dresses. So I drew up a pattern from a sleeveless t-shirt and proceeded to whip up this baby.
OK, it wasn't as easy as that. I really wanted a dress with a real placket so I did a little research along the way when I realized that heck, I couldn't figure out how to do it on my own. First, I read through this tutorial from Ruby in Blue.. The pictures were kind of fuzzy and far away and the placket wasn't really what I wanted anyway so I tried a different tutorial. I found one from the ever-industrious Made by Rae for a man's shirt placket found here. Although the directions were clear there were a few very key pictures missing. But I got the gist and just winged the rest.
The candy corn buttons I found at JoAnn's in the Halloween display. Adorbs, right?
Next up, a candy corn dress for B (I promise I'll post pictures) and Elsie Marley's KCWC.
