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!
