Dr Seuss Day

I saw some darling dresses on a forum this week and I couldn't resist. The fabric was $10.99 a yard! with out a coupon :0  so unlike me. But don't you think they are worth it?

Before I could get the straight pictures we had to do this:

I used a T-shirt to start.  The original I was coping from SewForum made the top but I was pressed for time.  And, if you can believe it, I couldn't find enough white fabric in my drawers.  I like the t-shirt option.
On CeCe's I did 'rough' applique. I ironed the cut out of the Dr. Seuss fish and ironed it on some red knit.  Then I zig-zag stitched that on the shirt.

And just to step up this little skirt a bit I added rick rack to the top layer.  I used steam to seam to iron it into place.  I used my fancy shmancy  binder foot to add that double fold bias tape.  I really want to get another one that does a wider binding.

I think they were pleased with their Dr Seuss day attire!
Happy Birthday Dr Seuss!

    I broke down and bought some of the Dr. Suess fabric after seeing Jerry's post, too.
