Quilting Cotton in a Main Color/Contrasting Color, 100% Trade Cotton for Crocheted Bodice, and Pearl Embroidery Thread for Crocheted flower. Size H and B hooks for crochet work. Buttons
What was your inspiration?
My toddler : ). She LOVES to wear dresses, and I was running out of time and decided to crochet the bodice and sew on a simple gathered skirt with coordinating border. I'm a very poor sewer, so this was stretching my limits. Also, I saw similar dresses in the stores and couldn't stomach paying for child slave labor.
What are you most proud of?
I get really excited when I come up with something in my head and it turns out ok. My girls have been experimenting as well, and I love seeing their creativity.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Be patient and prepared to take your time so it turns out nicely.
