This week's theme for PR&P was "Candy Inspired." I had some cute ideas--a dress with an orange-ish top and pleated skirt (Reese's Peanut Butter Cup)? This cute orange striped adult's dress I found at Goodwill, cut up and pieced together into a cute chevron skirt (Starbursts--the connection being the color and the angles)? I loved the orange stripes, so I went with that one.
That thrifted dress had a cute flower-and-hearts pattern on the bottom, so I wanted to make a quick dress for Boo with it before I used the rest to make the chevron skirt. I knew Boo would love the dress, and she even hugged the fabric before I made it into a dress!
Just look at that happy face! Boo loves her new dress, which is just the Popover dress again, virtually unaltered this time for simplicity. She's worn it three times so far, and I just made it on Saturday. :)
I realized my children have plenty clothes, so I decided not to make the second dress. I know this simple dress won't win this week's contest, but I'm okay with that. Boo LOVES the dress, and that's what really matters.
