(I forgot to take a true 'before' picture, so there is actually one side seam in the fabric already in this picture.)
Before Lucky went to bed, I took some quick measurements and then I made a side hem and a top and bottom hem in the wrong order. The next time, I will do the top and bottom hems first, and then the side hem...whoops. I had a reason for doing the side hem first, but it is too boring to explain. Anyway, I also made two straps that can either be tied behind Lucky's neck, or I may sew them to the back of the dress for true spaghetti straps.
Here is what was waiting on Lucky's door when she got up in the morning:
And when Lucky me up for the day at 5:48 am, here is what she had already put on
'all by her big girl self':
She even paired the dress with a pair of white capri leggings. She loves layering clothing! And I love that she is wearing something I made, even if the fabric is so easy to work with, anyone could make this dress! I'll be looking for more fabric like this the next time I'm in a fabric store. Maybe Lucky and I will sport matching dresses someday:)!
