A New Dress

Thought I'd share a cute little dress I made for one of my granddaughters. I'm not sure which one of them it will fit so I have to send it to them to try on before making another dress for the one who this one doesn't fit. Did that make sense? In other words, I didn't want to make 2 of the dresses either the same size or one larger/smaller until I knew if this one fits either of them first.

I love the bright lime green color of this dress. It is so cheery! It's hard to see but there are butterflies all over the dress. Trust me, they are there!

The dress has 2 buttons on the straps and I haven't made buttonholes on any clothing in a long time so it was a bit of a challenge to me to get them just right. After struggling with them, I discovered I needed more practice! Ha ha! The buttons I used are clear flower buttons from Close To My Heart. Yep, that's right! I used scrapbooking supplies on this dress. That shouldn't be too much of a surprise to you if you know me! ;-)

Okay, off to the post office to send this to the little girlies to see who it fits! Thanks for stopping by today!
