Millburn, New Je...
This little number was inspired after first glance of this mini boden dress. The construction is pretty simple with an a-line cut and lots of pleats around the neck. The inside is fully lined, and there is a zipper on the back. I had some light weight twill on hand and put it together last minute after I dyed the twill with some red Rit dye. I was very thankful to find many great resources on fabric dyeing- it is a really easy process, and the fabrics I have experimented on have turned out well.
Although I tried to encourage my daughter to keep her new dress clean, I think it made me cringe a little less knowing the supplies cost me about $7 to make it. By the end of the day it was covered in everything she came in contact with.
1 yard twill, 1 yard muslin lining, 7" invisible zipper, 2" yard trim
