It's been delightful seeing all of your Easter dresses in the patterns group! Today I'm excited to share our latest mash-up with you - also perfect for Easter. We have our wonderful Deborah Koch here, from Ma Cherie Kids, to show us her newest creation using two of our favorite CKC patterns.
Isn't it pretty?! To make this dress, Deborah used Lorelai's Tiered Ruffle Neck Dress and Yvette's Stripwork Knot Dress. Here are what the originals of those two dresses look like:
They're both adorable and by putting different parts of the patterns together Deborah came up with a completely new dress! Let's take a closer look:
First of all, Deborah used the top of Lorelai's to get the beautiful neck ruffle. She added 2" to the bodice length so the dress would end up the proper length when put together with the new skirt.
She also added a pretty accent flower that's attached with a pin so it can be removed for washing.
The Yvette's skirt is so pretty with it's wide stripwork and trim band. I think it goes perfectly with the ruffled bodice. I also love Deborah's fabric choices here! For the mashup she didn't have to make any adjustments to the skirt measurements to make it work with the bodice.
Finally, Deborah added a sash that ties in a beautiful bow in back. I like how this is a small detail of chevron that looks dainty along with the rest of the prints of the dress.
The dress can also be worn without the removable sash. It's almost like having a completely new look! Both ways are so pretty.
Thanks again to Deborah Koch for our monthly mash-up! There are no limits to our creativity when we take great patterns and throw our own unique ideas into the mix. I hope we all have a great week finishing up those Easter projects.
