Spring Fever Remix

Over at Project Run and Play is a pattern remix challenge. Jessica of Me Sew Crazy offered her Spring Fever Dress pattern for us to rework and make our own.


This was a fun dress to make! I made a few modifications. The first being the size. Her pattern only went up to a size 5, and my girl wears a 6, so I enlarged everything slightly.


The next thing I did was move that lovely ruffled piece to the front, and give it a little pleat and some beautiful buttons.


These buttons have a leaf pattern on it that mimics the feathers on the fabric. They may just be one of my favorite things about this project. I love that I found them and how they fit together with the fabric {BTW: all fabric was found thrifting! More reason to love.}


I also gave it some sweet puffy gathered sleeves.


I lengthened each tier and only made 3 instead of 4 ruffles for the bottom half.


The button on the back is from my older daughter’s stash, actually. It is vintage and also has a feathered pattern on it. Fabulous!


I thought it needed a belt around the middle, so I whipped up a velcro {detachable} belt with my label on the back. *I also think this would be a great place to put a fabric flower too*


It fits my Falafel like a glove, and she loves it!


She even put it on and agreed to take photos in the rain. That is love right there.


I hope you enjoyed my little pattern remix!

What have you made today?

  1. Gorgeously done! I had plans of remixing and was going to move the back detail to the front also, but I doubt I’ll fit in enough sewing time to get it done. Oh well. I’ll enjoy the linky party viewing! 🙂
