I stenciled tree branches on my version of the Anda, then appliqued some cotton print birds and leaves made from fused plastic Target bags. I then finished the neck, sleeves, and hem with bias tape. I decided to keep the length long, cause I love my partner in fifties-ish outfits. The dress has in-seam pockets done in the polka dot print (many thanks to BurdaStyle for the great tutorial!).
Two cotton bedsheets (blue for dress shell, white for bias tape), fused plastic bags, more cotton for birds, fabric paint
Forgot to say earlier, these photos are all courtesy of my amazing friend Nathan. He makes stuff look so good!
Sweet dresses, an outfit for a doll, and cute embellishments are fun for the holidays!
