Have you ever made something for your child, and thought to yourself "Hot diggity dog - I could TOTALLY do with one of those for myself?"
Me too. Case in point below:
Seriously - how cute is this elephant dress? I love the cut, I love the pocket slash side panel design, I love the pleated sleeve caps, I love the overlapping shoulders. I think I need to make her another. Denim? Liberty print? Maybe a whole wardrobe, in every colour/design that I can think of!
The fabric I used was a heavier weight cotton, and I was a bit nervous that the dress might end up a bit stiff looking, but it actually has turned out perfectly. In fact, I think if you used a quilting weight cotton, the dress might not hold up as well.
