Thanks everyone!

The fabric is cotton/lycra knit.

I haven't shared here in a while, but I was really excited by how these turned out! First is a dragon dress:

I sketched out a bunch of dragons until I came up with one I liked:



I originally planned to just do a band of blue at the bottom, but I had this scrap of fabric from when I cut out the dragon and it was a sort of swirly wave shape. When I laid it on the bottom of the dress, it was like a lightbulb went off! I decided to make a whole wave applique all the way around the hem.





I've also been wanting to do a realistic butterfly applique forever. This is what I came up with:
Here are the separate pieces I made


Layered together:


Then I lightly drew in detail lines with chalk and sewed it with black thread:


And here it is all together with the dress I made:




Thanks for looking!

I've been looking around a lot at vintage dresses from the 1930s. LOVE the style. Here is my interpretation of a 1930's dress and hat (my own patterns).

The dress and hat are cotton/lycra jersey. The turquoise ties and calla lily on the top are a woven cotton print. I also used a small piece of vintage lace on the hat.

OMG those are completely AWESOME!!! My kids (the 4 yr old twins and the 7 yr old) all love Pocoyo. Better not let them see this or they'll be expecting me to whip up some awesomeness for them!  Wink

I saw a photograph of plum poppies on Etsy and was inspired to make a dress. I wanted to do the appliques differently this time, with a more natural, organic feel. I made the stems and leaves 3 dimensional and the flower petals are layered and then have additional stitching to make it look even more like petals. The second dress is one I had in mind for a while. I've been wanting to do the gray and aqua together and some sort of lotus and after the poppies dress, I came up with this one.

I had this idea for these 4 dresses I wanted to do. I got my 2 girls, my niece, and a friend's daughter to model. All 4 were around 4 years old. That made for an interesting shoot!! Here they are (I'm probably going to take Curly  back to my mom's house and re-do her shots since I didn't get any great ones with her by the tree/bench):
