Flop To Cute Frock


We all have had them (sigh), projects that flop. This one sadly is one of mine.


 It was inspired by one of my favorite tops from Ann Taylor.
(love the metallic trim)


 I had found some fabulous brown with gold pinstripe fabric for only $5 a yard and (light bulb) thought this will be perfect to make that top! Made it and did not like it. I could not bare to waist the fabric and time that I had put into it. I took one look at Sophia and thought sundress.

Here is the finished product. What do you think?



She takes after her mother :)

What a precious sundress! How did you make the flower for it? I can't seem make them correctly and I have an outfit for my little girl that needs one right on the halter top smack in the middle! It looks empty without it. Even sewing mistakes can be recycled or upcycled!
