Last One



Okay, this is the last one. Here is my final entry for the Lil Blue Boo / Dharma Trading Design Challenge.
I wasn't necessarily planning on making so many, but seriously they are sooo fun to make!  And I had this super cute flower shirt that I wanted to use for this next one.  So, here is what I came up with:

Because of the way the front of the flower shirt was, I wasn't able to use as much of the shirt as I wanted to in the dress.  So, instead I used the flowers on that shirt as the inspiration for the giant flower applique.  And the sleeves are a sort of bell sleeve and are gathered where they attach to the dress.  What do you think?

I tried to do a little photo shoot this morning, but I am no photographer.  I wish my friend were here this morning to take the pictures.  But, here are a few fun ones.  Maybe jumping on a bed isn't the best idea for a photo shoot, and then adding the wild older brother and things got even crazier...oh well.  I'm excited to see all the other entries for the Lil Blue Boo contest...I bet there will be some amazing ones!

This is completely unrelated to the dress (though I LOVE it). I am distracted by the tone-on-tone paint on the wall behind the bed! Do you remember the color/brand? Did you just do two finishes (satin, high-gloss?) or something else? Maybe you've already blogged about this, but if not I'd LOVE some details! I'm thinking it might be time to paint another room... Thanks!

This dress came up in the slideshow at LBB and I had to come straight here to see it. It is just adorable! Man, if you made a few of these for Etsy they would be gone instantly. I call one! :)

Great job!
