My crafting ADD struck this weekend. A few weeks ago I made this dress for Piper:
I had just gotten my serger out of the box and was looking for a quick project to practice with it. Cute, easy and quick to put together. My kind of project.
Last week I got my Hanna Andersson summer sale catalog in the mail (always dangerous). In the catalog, I saw this dress:
Sadly, that current dress is sold out. However, I figured I could remake something very similar. Using the O+S Popover Sundress pattern and adding a tiny remix and I ended up with this.
I could spend the time doing a "tutorial" on how I did it, but it wasn't anything terribly difficult or genius. All I did was measure the length of the original dress, decided how big of a ruffle I wanted, subtracted that number from the length, sewed up said ruffle (there are a dozen or so tutorials online for ruffles) and added it to the bottom of the dress. I have 2 or 3 more remake ideas for the Popover dress. It's such a basic dress that lends itself well to changing it up easily. I just hope I can focus on the projects I should be working on and not letting my crafting ADD get the best of me. Just in case I can't, stay tuned for more. ;)
