The Unicorn Dress September 22, 2017 – Posted in: dress, girls clothes, sewing
If you haven’t noticed, I never made Easter dresses for the rest of my girls. They don’t really need more clothes, and I was kinda’ burnt out after Project Run and Play. I got fabric for some of them, so we’ll see what I feel like making in the future. This is my new underachiever attitude: I will sew if and when I feel like it. Isn’t that how a hobby is supposed to be?
The day of my youngest child’s 4th birthday, I felt like sewing. I didn’t have much of the unicorn fabric I had ordered for her, so I knew that I should probably sew something with it before she outgrew the fabric or her unicorn obsession. I had been stuck in that overthinking stage, but I realized that an imperfect dress was better than a piece of fabric on my shelf.
I used the free London dress pattern from Violette Field Threads. I extended the bodice and for the skirt I just used 3/4 yd of the unicorn panel cut in half. It went together really easily, although the top is a little wide under the arms. Maybe she will grow into it? It isn’t perfect, but I have a feeling that she will wear this dress until it is completely stained or falls apart.
For pure silliness I photoshopped a horn on our horse, just because my daughter asked me to. Why not?
