The first challenge up is this fabulous Bubble Dress done by Alida Makes! You can check out her post here with the FREE Tutorial http://alidamakes.com/2013/06/bubble-dress-tutorial.html Don't you simply love that sailboat print?! It makes me dream of the ocean.
As for my take on the pattern, I wasn't feeling a dress right now I think because I've been SO cold lately with the low temperatures outside (and not to mention my husband wants to keep our house at FREEZING levels at all times) so I knew I at least wanted something to cover my little ones legs. I started out not really knowing what I was going for but already had this really nice flouncy, stretchy knit fabric I was dying to use up. So I decided to just jump in and see what I ended up with!
After about an hour of sewing- the Bubble Romper was born ;)
First off-check out this fabric! Isnt it super cool? It has a very slight ruffle, is super light and ever so stretchy, what more could you ask for?
While creating this piece, right about halfway through I took it to have my girly try it on and as soon as she saw it she shouted "Oh my goodness my own jumpsuit!" Is that not hilarious? I am not sure if these kind of outfits are cool among this age category but I was sure relieved when I saw her reaction.
Thankfully she loves it and hasn't wanted to take it off! Needless to say I did not have to twist her arm or bribe her to get photos of her wearing it ;)
I think my favorite part of the outfit is the back! She helped me decide on the halter straps. We were going to go with kriss-kross straps but I was reminded to much of a clown suit. I don't know maybe it was just me but I'm pleased with the end result.
Thanks Alida for the awesome tutorial and inspiration! I know one little girl that is very happy!
