Mama Made: Tulip Dress

It's about time for another mama made dress.  I've been loving spring...and was thinking about tulips. How about one with hand appliqued tulips?  I have to say, I'm a fan.

I cut out portions from a simplicity pattern, but then I didn't really follow the rest of the pattern and did my own thing. This dress looks nothing like the picture afterall.
The dog likes it.

And the zipper?  Totally upcycled. You know the plastic pouches you get when you buy sheets?  Well, the bag ripped.  So I ripped out the zipper and used it for the dress.  The fabric was a thrifted purchase or given to me by a friend.  I cannot remember which, but I know I didn't buy the fabric.
And I think she looks sweet in the dress.

 Only she doesn't stay still long enough to get a good shot.
Oh well.  I gave up and then I got a little out of control with the camera, as usual.  I hope you don't mind.

  1. Oh this is so adorable I love the dress and the T shirt you are very clever. Smiling faces say it all. B

  2. It is so perfect! I just love the tulips on the dress. I was hoping for some good shots of the dress on Audra and you didn't let me down! :) Such a clever idea on upcycling the zipper. Very creative!
