Jungle dress (aka- Momma got a whole lotta fleece)

Recently, I was gifted a large bag of fleece remnants. Many of the remnants turned out to be much bigger than I initially thought they would be (many a metre or slightly longer). I started the process of washing a bunch of pieces to decide what I wanted to do first. My kids however took over the fleece and have been playing with them. This particular piece was tucked around my daughter to make a makeshift dress. Since it looked cute on her and she liked it, after bedtime that night, I traced an existing dress of hers and fashioned a jumper. I made it longer than usual since we tend to keep the house cooler and I thought it would be nice for extra warmth. I didn’t bother with a hem because it is fleece and not going to fray. I also didn’t wind up evening out the bottom leaving the “jungle” feel.

You do have to excuse the quality of pictures, my camera isn’t doing well at the moment. Just when I have a bunch of projects ready for pictures!

    I know what daughters can be like! haha! the fabric I have is a kind of fake fur, but light enough to make a dress. But spring is coming to our country so she wont be able to wear it anymore tis year, I think it wil be something for next winter. Sometimes it is nice to make an easier project in between,…

      Unfortuately, in her true spirit, she refused to wear it for pictures. It was super simple to make, I just took a jumper dress that fit her and mainly traced it out, tweaking it where I wanted to. With the fleece, it is definately about a 1 hour project. Post your pics when you’re done yours!
