I was cleaning out huge bins of fabric that people have given me over the years and found a bunch of older fabric. It was stiff, probably because it is polyester, but I was hoping a trip through the washer and dryer would loosen it up. I was right! So I combined this black and white polka dot, some yellow gingham and some train fabric. I think they look great together! You know, sometimes I will sit and look at fabric and instantly an image pops up in my head of what I want to do with a piece of fabric. That happened with these particular pieces. As soon as I layed them down next to each other I knew they needed to be a tiered peasant style dress. They are a little to young for my girls, so in mind they belonged to baby Avie! I love when it all works out!
Pattern: Farbenmix Tini
size 86, which is the smallest it comes, but may be too big for tiny little Avie.
I searched for a long time trying to find an embroidery of those railroad crossing signs that are yellow with black letters that say R/R. But I couldn't find one that was just perfect. So I let it go. But I still think the dress came out pretty darn cute!
Update: I finally got a modeling shot of this dress on little Avie! Not too big at all!
