Well, the Easter season and spring weather inspired me to step out of my comfort zone. My result was this cute toddler dress.
The top is completely knit with buttons on the back to close it up and add a little bit of interest. The skirt is actually an old pillow case. It made it pretty easy to put together. I just used the already hemmed edge of the pillow case for the bottom and gathered at the top.
I attached the two together by sewing the skirt onto the cast off edge of the dress with the same color yarn that I used for the top. When researching on how to do this I think some people used cotton thread, but I found that to be too flimsy and didn't hold very well.
I'll have this dress in the shop soon. I am planning to attach some yoyos for decor and add a hair piece as well to match.
