I don’t want to discourage her love of unicorns…I love that she loves them. But the fabric choices are few and far between and usually consist of garish hues of pink and purple. And those fabrics are okay in the right context, but I like to dress my girly in a modern, stylish way that is a little edgy and different. So, I did a little happy dance when I found this totally cute unicorn fabric from Girl Charlee. Not only was it $4.40/yard(!), it was black and white, which to me is the ultimate combo for sophistication. The unicorns keep it playful and actually bring the fantasy hype up a notch with that flowing mane and tail. I realize that these unicorns don’t have wings, but you see that little horn on his head? That’s all that matters, amirite?
I wish I could’ve gotten pictures of her wearing this to church Sunday, but sometimes my model goes on strike…you know coloring the sidewalk in chalk is more important than posing for mom! It is absolutely darling. It fits her like a dream. Just the right length and the elastic waist gives it a trendy look. The pattern I used was this super cute dress I found on iCandy. It is a free pattern for size 5T (score!) and took me an hour to sew up from printing the pattern to sewing the hem. Seriously, these tips for piecing together patterns makes sewing so much quicker and more enjoyable.
This is my first accomplishment for KCW (kids clothing week). I’m hoping to get a few more things done this week and will blog about them when I can….stay tuned!
