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.

Cute dresses on even cuter girls!  Cheesy

My favourite is the poppies dress. I love the colour and the shape of that one!

Well done! If only I had girls.... (gladly I do have nieces, ha!)
