DIY – Little girl dress

DIY - Little girl dress Craft takes on a whole new dimension when you get to make something that is actually useful. It is especially gratifying when you can tell your spouse that in fact you saved money by making this dress.

This is a beautiful frilly dress, with butterfly sleeves, just below the knee, with a bunny rabbit applique. Though it is not an original pattern (the pattern is from Burda), I love how customizable it is. You can pick your own fabric, your own ribbons, underskirt, and even make your own applique!

Lexie said she wanted a Blue Ribbon Bunny applique (from Sofia the first, but in order to avoid infringing on some copyright laws, we improvised). I have a previous post that shows a very simple step by step tutorial how to make appliques using sewing machine. You can find the tutorial here.

The front of the dress is so simple, yet delicate. Reminds me of the Russian uniform we used to wear during Soviet times (I am that old! Sounds like a different lifetime altogether!)

Really grateful for the buttonhole function on my sewing machine!

My little girlie girl was very excited! What girl would say no to a pretty frock!
