The modern "Little Red Ridding Hood" dress

This is one of my favorite dresses I have made for my daughter lately.

 A few months ago, I bought 1 yard of the Little Red Riding Hood Little Scallops Green fabric and 1 yard of the Little Red Riding Hood Little Stripe Grey fabric by Riley Blake.  

  I'm in love withe the illustrations from Tasha Noel featured on the fabric. That is the main reason why I bought the fabric in the first place, haha!

The other day I just wanted to sew something and I wanted to use some of the Little Red fabric, so I just got some of other fabricfrom my stash and got to work.

I also made coordinating, fabric covered buttons, for the dress. They look so cute. Don't they???

I  also made coordinating buttons, to go with the dress. 

Here is my baby girl wearing her dress:

I made a halter style dress, with a shirred back and a gathered skirt. I also added an oversized pocket on the front of the dress, which is embellished with scalloped lace trim. The hem of the skirt is also adorned with a really cute heart trim I bought on sale at Joann's Fabrics (for only 50 cents a yard!).

I also made a matching headband for her. I always like to make something for her hair :)

I really liked how this dress turned out and my daughter likes it too.

Thanks for visiting my blog and come back soon to check out the other things I make for my kids. This next week I will be participating in the Kids Clothes Week Summer 2013, so I will be posting new stuff for sure.

Until next time,

Maria <3
