LBB Design Challenge - Entry #2

So I got inspired and decided to do another last minute entry into

So here she is!

I've been seeing these cute floral embellished details on everything lately and kept thinking to myself "I can do that!" So I finally decided to attempt it on another dress for Avery.

I love the way it turned out!

I used one of my old shirts to make the entire dress. Just one shirt to keep it simple and not take away from the embellishments. Then I used scraps of that shirt along with scraps of an orange t-shirt and white tank top from other projects...exactly why I hang onto all those tiny scraps! You never know when they might come in handy ;)

I added the floral detail all along the front neckline.
(I also added light interfacing to the front/top dress piece to reinforce the knit and keep it from sagging.) To create the flower, all I did was cut circles of fabric, twist them in the middle and then sew over them a couple of times to hold the twist and attach it to the dress.
Last, I added buttons from the original henley shirt to the sleeve of the dress.

I used the LBB Sienna Dress pattern again, and this time just altered the sleeve length.

No pictures yet of Avery in the dress since I finished after she went to bed!

Hopefully I'll get some tomorrow.

Update {2/16}

Got some cute pics of Avery in the dress this morning!
