Michael Miller Mermaid Dress




Yay! Something new to post:) I can't even tell you how long Mia has been asking me to make her a dress out of this mermaid fabric. Last night around 11pm I actually decided to start it. Today I finished the straps and button holes. You can't really tell from the picture, but there are two button holes in the back that I criss crossed the straps through and then tied them into a square knot. I love that the straps are long enough to hang down in the back underneath the knot. Mia looks so darling in these colors-they just scream SUMMER! She loves mermaids and loves to swim, so this was a perfect fabric choice for her. Now I want to buy more of this fabric and use it to make some hoodie towels, burp cloths, and diaper caddies!

Isn't it gratifying when you make the little one so happy? I remember a horrible (oh, gosh, that word doesn't begin to describe it!) purple Barney print dress that my niece was just enchanted with. I hated every moment of sewing that nasty knit fabric, but she adored it.
Your Michael Miller fabric, on the other hand, is just darling.
