Stripe Maxi Dress

Summer in Az calls for dresses! My daughter loves to wear dresses in the summer since they feel cooler and well she is a girlie girl. I've noticed that she was already out growing some of the ones I've made her last year or bought her. It's mommy made to the rescue, I've been wanting to make her a maxi dress ever since she learned how to walk lol. So now I think she is in the appropriate age to be able to move and handle a maxi dress.
For this design I decided to do a basic tank pattern and I measured her for the desired length. The hem was going to be high low but, squared out. I was inspired by my stripe black and white maternity dress. I had another stripe black in white fabric in my stash, this was a cotton jersey blend and was softer.

Unfortunately, like many times I didn't have enough fabric for the stripes to go horizontal. I really wanted to use this fabric so I decided the next best thing was to have the stripes go vertically. Since it is a four way stretch it wouldn't affect the design lucky for me!!
when I finished sewing it I was so excited to have her try it on, but I had to wait until she woke up. She wore it for Westgate Wednesday which is a summer fun of music, dancing, games, and meet and greet Disney Characters. She was going to meet Rapunzel and Belle, I didn't want her to wear her bell dress again lol and didn't really feel like making a Rapunzel inspired dress. I was a bit nervous about showing her what she'd be wearing. Lucky for me her reaction was "Oh mommy is soooo bew-ti-ful!!"
 Striking a pose!!

She looked so adorable, I even took her to grandma's house and she loved the way she looked. Here are some pictures I snapped before the event and at the event.
Also, here is the picture of her with Belle and Rapunzel



I've been thinking of adding this design to my Etsy shop, let me know if you would like to see it available and what size would you be interested? If I get a good amount of interest I will make it happen!!

  1. Aw, your little girl is so cute. The maxi dress is adorable. I never thought of maxi dresses for little girls, but it works. You did such a good job making it and I might have to bug my mother (who is way more crafty than I am) to make some for my little girl.

Hello darlings, today I have a beauty product review from Keep Me Safe Organics!

The company carries organic, toxic free beauty and skincare products. I believe that taking care of your face is important since it is the first thing everyone sees so make it a lasting impression. I'll be reviewing their skincare line, which are the facial cleanser, facial toner, facial moisturizer, serum, and rejuvenating glacier mud mask. (Disclosure, all products provided by Keep Me Safe OrganicsAll my opinions are mine and I'm keeping it 100%.)
In order to give you my honest opinion, I tested the products for three days and made a video documenting my results after using all the products. I will post the video below. Let's talk about my skin issues before using the products; I suffered from dry flaky skin, red blotchy patches on my cheeks and of course acne. I'll be reviewing each item and tell you a bit more about them.
