Strawberry Shortcake Dream Dress

Added Jun 12, 2010

Portland, Maine,...






What a delightful surprise, to love this dress much more than I anticipated! Allow me to list its lovable qualities: it’s pink! and it’s comfy! and its just so darn cute! I have worn this exact outfit on more than one rainy spring day…bright colors help with the gloom. It was a fairly straightforward pattern, the most difficult part was attaching the lining at the “v” in the neck. I added a pocket for practicality. You would never have known, but the fabric is from an upcycled fitted bed sheet. Isn’t it wonderful? I don’t know why anyone would make it for a bed when it was obviously meant for this dress!

    It’s so cute! The bodice has such a flattering cut… and I am very jealous of your gumboots!!!

    It’s lovely! The colour is great, and looks fantastic together with the red accessories. Also, I really like the cut of the dress, have to check out the pattern.
