Good Morning my lovelies!

Last month I purchased some summer clothes for the Marshmallow and instantly fell in love with the fit and flare of one of her racerback shirts.IMG_6778I started this purple dress thinking ruffles and straps and but in the middle of making the straps, my mind kept going back to the racer back shirt. I decided to give it a try and attempted to trace a pattern from her existing shirt. It worked out wonderful! I love how simple this dress is (only 3 pattern pieces) and it took me under four hours start to finish.

Over time I’ve accumulated a lot of trim and bias tape so most times I just go to my stash to see what I can use, and was so excited to find both apple green bias tape and ricrac. (CUTE STORY about the ric rac, my hubby actually bought that ric rac for a mother’s day craft project with the kids and I was left with the remainder, just love how that worked out!)This time I decided to use the bias tape as a facing instead and I absolutely love that contrasting peek-a-boo look ( I think I will be using it that way from now on).


SIDE NOTE: Since my entire sewing journey, my top thread and bobbin thread were always the same color – until yesterday. I wanted purple in the top  to match the dress and apple green on the bottom to match the bias facing.

Now for the full front view:  Isn’t that headband just the cutest thing you’ve ever seen? I think it compliments the simplicity of the dress perfectly. The Marshmallow doesn’t have very many headbands, but I will definitely be purchasing more from  Raquel’s Headbands (these headbands are custom handmade and affordable).fulldress copyactionshot1
