Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
I had a request from my little leprechaun catcher this year, to make her a green dress for this holiday. Not only a green dress, but one she would design herself!
I couldn’t refuse such a fabulous idea.
I give to you….the Limerick Princess Dress!
There once was a girl dressed in green
who never ever ever was mean
She always was nice
like sugar and spice
Just like her sister the teen.
I started with dyeing another sheet. This time, shamrock green. She designed the one gather in the front, along with the special tulip-esque sleeves. I just happened to have a enough of the gold left over from the vest project to use, along with some gold tulle in my stash.
I had never done any sleeves like this before, so this was really a test. I had to design the shape and figure out how to put it all together. I think they came out quite cute. She loves them.
I added the design to the collar (which I also drafted), and the sash. The zip is not quite invisible, but I am OK with it.
This was a fun one to do.
My sweet girl was so excited about this, and now she has croup (AGAIN)! What the what? I have no idea why she has had such a difficult year when it comes to germs, but I told her to stop licking her hands….and her classmates. That made her giggle.
Also to not take the whole “being green” thing so literally.
Wishing you all a Happy (and healthy) St.Patrick’s Day!
