Big Top Dress

 Project Run and Play - Week 2 - Spots and Stripes

For this week's theme I was inspired by the following two dresses.
I loved the bold stripe and the contrast with the red and blue:

I had some lovely bold red and white stripe fabric in my stash and used this to create the 'Big Top' dress for Clementine.

I used my Ponyo pattern with the collar omitted in favor of a bias trim and added pockets and a blue ribbon.

For the back enclosure I sewed on these awesome roller skate buttons I've been waiting forever to use!

It's a lovely little casual dress that is very easy care and I love the little treasure pockets!

Clementine giving her best Bjork wink!

See all the entries HERE and play along!


  1. Okay - the dress is super cute, but I can't get over how adorable your daughter is (both of them are)! The twisties all over her head are just too cute and you can see she's got personality to spare!

  2. What a little cutie-pie! I love how you have the stripes in the pockets off-set from those in the skirt. Great job!

  3. So cute! You have been BUSY!! I'm very partial to red and white stripes, how I'd love that dress as my own.

  4. I have both of those inspiration dresses pinned on pinterest too! Love stripes, as you can see by my entry this week as well! We think alike :)Great dress!

  5. Great job on the dress & your baby girl is a beauty!

  6. Love the dress and the shots of the 2 girls together. Nothing is better than a sister!

  7. The girls both look gorgeous in their new dresses!

  8. I have had that same Boden dressed pinned forever! Your version is adorable!

  9. This dress is adorable and your little girl is so dang cute. That last picture kills me!

  10. Beautiful dresses and that yellow one is absolutely GORGEOUS! Mel x
