This dress has done a 180.
Literally. I turned the back into the front because it was just plain boring. I imagined the braided neckline would be just so elegant it wouldn't need anything, but then the back turned out so much more interesting, I flipped it. I had to add the extra gathered panel since I originally made it lower in the back. If you have a 3 year old, you know they just like easy, slip on clothes, which is what I did here, using elastic thread on the eggplant panel and gathered the sheer overlay with 3/8" elastic. The neckline was made by loosely braiding strips of the sheer fabric cut on the bias. The cap sleeves don't cover the entire armhole, so I finished it with a strip of bias as well.
Love her face
I love that every time I ask my kids to try on an article of clothing they ask,
"Are there pins in it?" to gauge how careful they need to be putting it on.
Will I make it?
