Last month I showed the Gray and Yellow Floral Halter Dress I made for myself. While I was working on my dress, I stared to think what I could make for my little girl with the same fabric, so we can enjoy the mommy-and-me look. My first idea was to make a bubble dress for her. I thought, and still think, this fabric will make a beautiful bubble dress. But then my little girl entered the "twirly-skit-only" stage. I am pretty sure a bubble dress will not make her happy at this time...
So I did what I had to do...I made another twirly skirt for her ;)
Instead of the button closure for the waistband in the tutorial, I inserted an elastic to make it easier for Momo to wear.
When I wrote about my dress, I mentioned the bodice is too big for my flat chest. I replaced the button closure in the neck strap with longer straps, so I can tie them and make the bodice fitted to my body. However, tying the straps too tight will pull up the dress, so I cannot tie them too tight. So this fix is better, but not perfect. I still need the help of the fashion tape, just to be safe ;p
I must entertain Momo until I get all the pictures I need...that means I would dance with her,
or hand over my bracelets to her. She loves shiny accessories. :)
While sewing for myself is challenging and fun, my passion is sewing for my little girl. And if she wants another twirly skirts or dresses, she will get them. You will probably not see me sewing pants for a while...
Linking up to those fun parties.
