I discovered this fabric one day at Music City Thrift and knew it had to end up as some kind of Charlie Brown inspired party dress. I did not have a pattern, but just draped and trimmed the bodice until it fit my form perfectly, then edge stitched, and added the matching yellow buttons.
For the skirt I found some remnant knit fabric, made a slightly bubble shape, and added welt pockets for pizazz. On the pockets I attached my favorite ribbon trim, created from my Trim on a Whim tutorial and it gives such a nice color!
I hope to have some dresses picked for a local boutique in Nashville and I am definitely going to bring this one, it screams party!
I adore this crazy cotton print material, and have a bit left that I refuse to throw away…
