apron dress




dress: tiny fete / shoes: morgan and milo

over the weekend i worked on a custom order for a little girl's second birthday. the party theme is hello kitty and rainbows (best theme ever!). they're going to be doing arts and crafts so an apron dress was requested. i have never made one before but after looking at a dozen different kinds and wanting to come up with my own... here it is! i wanted this dress to be girly and fun. i added bias tape around the arms and flutter sleeves in a complimentary fabric. the ruffled apron is connected to the dress and ties in the back, making it completely adjustable. the elastic neck provides comfort and easy on/off. i hope that this little girl loves the dress. mine certainly did. luckily matilda is around the same age so she served as my fit model!
