I finally got around to throwing together a cute lil pillowcase-ish style dress for my spunky Lil Chick. I had a pattern in my head and really needed to see if it would work or not. I had this bright aqua, pink and green adorable fabric found at Walmart (of all places!) and bought a good five yards or so because it just SPOKE to me.
Ever have that? I'll walk through a fabric store and hear a deafening chorus of "Pick ME!!!! Pick ME!!! Take me home! Add me to your stash! I promise I'll behave and be beautiful! You'll LOVE me!"
It's a bit overwhelming.
Anywho. Was thrilled that this was a quick project with a high cuteness factor. That fits two of the requirements to ensure a repeat of a sewing project.
Got Lil Chick, dressed her up, and asked her to just stand and smile for me:
Whoops, kinda blurry and missed the full-on grin.
How bout a close-up?
Hoo boy. Told ya she had some spunk. I think she gets it from Auntie Mimi ;)
You think you're funny, dontcha?
Her response to my "Stop picking your toes!" comment:
The teen years may be rough.
C'mon girl, PLEASE will you smile?
OK, last chance!
Have since made another, nautical inspired, pillowcase dress, the next one I make I'll be snapping photos for a tutorial! Go pick out some fabric that's yelling at ya...
