Sweet Spring Dress



Know what's crazy?  I made another Charlotte Dress.

I KNOW RIGHT?!

I made this one on Saturday morning, just before we left for Easter dinner.  Literally - I've got this dress down to 30 minutes.  INCLUDING flip-flopping about what fabric to use.


I used a sweet pink polka dot stretch cotton, and I put a bird on it!  Are we still putting birds on things as a culture? I know I am.  :)


I shortened the sleeves by 2.5 inches to make this dress transition better into the warmer weather, and I also made it just a bit shorter in length.  Check out Emmy's Fall version of this dress here!


Bird!
Edited to add:  the bird is an iron-on from Jo-Ann's from eons ago, and I sewed it on with clear thread after I iron-on-ed it.


So there you have it!  A 30 minute Easter/Spring dress - yay!

Hope you all had a beautiful Easter weekend.  We sure did!  Stay tuned later this week for the alternate version of the Bubble Skirt!  EXCITED.



Love to all,

Pin It
