Fun Applique Dresses--Size 6-8

Project Description

What are you most proud of? The unique designs. I tried a variety of fabrics and designs for the "Laundry Day" appliques and then decorated the clothing items with lace and ribbons. This Birdie applique needed some bright trim to stand out from the background colors. She got a ruffled skirt and a hairbow and I added a bright thread for the applique stitches. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't be afraid to try some new techniques. Practice on scrap fabrics....and Have fun !! You don't even need a sewing machine to complete these projects; hand-sewing and an iron will work to make these dresses. Just use bias-tape for the armholes and avoid the elastic there.

What you will need

  • Vintage Pillowcases
