Spring is right around the corner and if you're not already dying to make those spring and summer dresses, this will definitely do it for you! Deborah Koch from Ma Cherie Kids is here with us to do a Springy take on two of our favorite patterns, mashed together for a unique look:
So perfectly pretty, right?! Just wait until you see her twirl!
For this mash-up, Deborah used the pattern for Paris' Party Dress --
-- As well as the pattern for Lorelai's Tiered Ruffle Neck Dress. They are both super cute dresses on their own. Now let's take a closer look at how Deborah put them together:
The bodice of this dress is the unique and ever-popular one shoulder design of Paris'. I love the whimsical fabric she chose. Deborah did not make any changes to the bodice as it is written in the original pattern because it's already the perfect length for this mash-up.
The skirt has three gorgeous tiers that really make the dress come alive. Deborah fluffed it up by using a removable pettiskirt such as Coco's, but she mentioned that it's also a great option to use the built- in pettiskirt that comes with Paris'. Either way, this three tier skirt has a lot of room to twirl!
Did you notice the ric rac trim at the bottom of the dress? I love it!
Here's the back of her beautiful dress, with double straps and an elastic bodice. This unique design is sure to get noticed. Deborah added her own simple sash to tie in back. I love the knotted look - we don't always need a bow!
There we have it; a gorgeous dress all put together. Deborah bought her fabric from Joann's and I'm pretty sure I need to go there right now to buy this exact fabric combination!
Another twirling shot. You can never have too many happy-girl, bouncy-hair, twirling shots!
What a darling little model too.
Thanks again to Deborah from Ma Cherie Kids for another beautiful mash-up. I am inspired by her talent and already can't wait to see what she comes up with for next month.
