Paper Fan Dress

This is another installment of Curly Cutie’s Summer Clothes.

I saw this Paper Fan dress by Anna Maria Horner and decided I would make one for CC.  It is a free download you can find here.

I had to slightly modify the pattern since I didn’t have any 1″ buttons for the back of the dress.  I cut a size 4 for CC, and it fits perfectly.

This was certainly a fun dress to make.  Curly Cutie was very pleased.  She ended up wearing me down to put barrettes in her hair.  A while back, one of my friends gave us a huge bag of them.  I am not very fond of those things.  I mean, every two seconds I was turning around because I thought someone was spilling water.  That’s what it sounds like as she walks around the house.  But oh, she feels like a princess so dad and I just carry on.  Lol.  Bonus hair pics at the end.

And a close up of the shoulder detail.  I simply took a strip of fabric, pleated it and stitched it down on the shoulder.  I thought it added a nice little touch.

Bonus:  Curly Cutie’s braided hair

You should have seen the excitement on her face as she picked out barrettes to coordinate with her dress.  I guess it’s the little things they enjoy sometimes.  And even though these barrettes can be on the verge of annoying (to me that is), it was my pleasure to grant her this request.  She will probably be in this zone for a little while, especially when she has braids.  How precious are our little ones?  Very!

This is how we’re clothing Curly Cutie for the summer!

  2. Such a beautiful dress and choice of fabric. I am going to attempt it for my Miss 2 and 5. Love the shoulder decal – I may steal it hehe
