Project Run and Play posted this month's pattern last week - the knot dress on The Sewing Rabbit and I already had my fabric picked out. The big flowers on the thrift store sheet are perfect for Easter, and with some tweaking, it works fabulously as a knot dress. As much as my princess loves twirly dresses, I didn't like the idea of a waistline cutting into those flowers, so I figured an a-line would be more suitable for the fabric.
I used the pattern provided, but skipped the keyhole back, duplicated the front, and then drafted my own a-line pattern onto it. I absolutely love how it turned out - even better than I imagined it.
And I just had to do it: I made it
I didn't want to go to the store, so I searched through my fabric stash, realizing I don't have a lot of large pieces of fabric. But I did happen to have another sheet. And I didn't want just plain red, so I had to come up with something to paint on it. So, much like Cupcake's Halloween skirt, I have created one outfit for two holidays: Easter and Canada Day!
So which side do you like? Easter floral or Canada leaf?
