The Big Bow Dress

I saw the Happy Day Big Bow Dress over at The Cottage Mama and I instantly fell in love with it! I thought it would look great on my daughter and it would make a good summer dress. I got to work on it right away and I was very happy that I made the entire dress out of fabric scraps.

Since it's still cold outside I layered it with a long sleeve shirt. My daughter actually did a great job modeling this outfit. Usually taking her picture is a nightmare but she must have felt runway ready in this dress. I decided to leave the pocket out because I thought it would look better without it.

I think I might make the bow shorter in length because my daughter is thin and I had to gather it a lot. I can't get the bow to look good since I need to make the loops so big so she won't trip on the ends when walking.

And just because my daughter was in the modeling mood her is the back of the outfit.
