My little princess wants to wear dresses all the time now
so instead of going out to buy her a bunch of dresses she will end up staining
I got a vintage Sears Kenmore sewing machine from one of my husband's aunts
but I can't seem to figure it all out so I ordered the manual online and
hopefully that will help so I can begin working on little diva's birthday dress.
In the meantime, here is how I made this outfit using
1. a long sleeve top with a gathered bottom
2. a white muscle tank (my son's)
First I cut the top off of the shirt
I flipped the skirt over, pinned it, ironed it and sewed the hem.
Then I cut off one of the sleeves and cut the sleeve in two pieces
to form one long strand:
I made my rosette and cut it out of the felt:
Using Fabric Glue I glued my rosette on to the tank.
I added a piece of paper underneath (Ikea Paper folded in half)
to keep the glue from going through to the other side.
I let that set overnight until the glue was dry.
I then pinned the skirt part on to the tank while it was inside out and
began sewing the skirt and tank together by hand.
As you can see my stitches are far from perfect but until I can get
my sewing machine to work it will do.
This little dress was easy to make and is perfect for her to wear around the
house once summer begins.
Here you can see my little model wearing her dress along with
her new leather house shoes that I found at Target for $3
