During the last season of Project Run & Play, we were challenged to remix Jess of CINO's super cute Junebug Dress. I made a fun little shirt, which a friend from church saw and admired. She asked me to make a version for her 6 year old, only with it turned back into a dress. So, the Junebug Remix and been remixed yet again!
This may rank right up there as the most sugary sweet pink confection of a dress I have ever made, but I kind of love it. The fabric is a Signature Cotton from JoAnn's and the ribbon and ric rac are sewn right on the fabric.
As with my Junebug Remix shirt, I added ruffles to the front bodice. This time instead of folding the ruffle strip in half lengthwise and then ruffling, I used one layer of fabric and did a rolled hem with my serger. I did the same for the little cap sleeves.
I removed the tie from the bottom band and instead made a rather long sash that ties in the back. I sandwiched the end of the ties into the bodice sides before sewing them up.
I really like the look of the ribbon and ric rac on the bias. I think it creates some nice texture to the dress. Plus, it's super girly, which I know my friend's daughter will love!
I'm hiding it from my girls, because I know my equally girly younger twin will want one!
Have a great weekend, everyone!
