After I posted the candy corn dress, my cousin-in-law, Angela, told me I would become addicted to applique. I don’t think I’m quite addicted yet but I’m getting better and really enjoy it!
Case in point: I made Aidan this cute little A-line dress from the same Children’s Corner “Lucy” pattern that I used on the candy corn dress. It goes together super easily and quick and looks adorable. I used chambray and red plaid to line it and top stitched the bottom hem to add a little something. I also used these adorable little Scottie dog buttons but I still felt it was just a little too plain.
It occurred to me that I could applique a little Scottie dog onto the skirt. Angela recommended that I use tear-away stabilizer to prevent puckering. It totally worked! Love it! 🙂 It turned out really cute and I know Aidan is going to love it…she loves animals.
Thanks, Angela! I believe I’ll be trying t-shirts and onesies next!
