Out to Sea Chevron Dress


It's Chevron week over at Project Run & Play. I have to admit, I am totally cheating. This week has been chaos with Spring Break and Easter and since our "Kid sewing day", I havn't touched my sewing machine. I still wanted to participate though, so I thought I could use my "Out to Sea Chevron Dress" that was technically made last November. All but the chevron fabric was used out of a pile of scrap fabric I won from Matilda Jane. YAY to free fabric! I even used one of their yellow mesh bags that their clothing comes in for the ruffles. 



I modified my Knot Dress Tutorial (size 8) to add the "World Map" panel in the front (the sash is thinner too). We have family and friends all over the world, so it was fun pointing out where "so and so" live on her dress. 

Have I mentioned that this child is a ham? She used to be so good at taking photo's, but now she has this "mind of her own".  
This is her "scream at the top of your lungs" pose:


Her "trying to chain herself up like a puppy" pose: 


Her on the move:



And I have no idea what is going on here:


Oh well, who needs a perfectly posed child? lol

  4. I love it. It is so fun. The re purpose of the bag into the ruffles is my favorite part. It's such a cute pattern. Way to join in the fun.

  5. The dress is charming and the pictures of your daughter having fun made me smile. The dress will be sure to be a favorite and long remembered because of the map and using it for looking for where family/friends live.
