Little Red Riding Hood Twirling Dress

A customer ordered a twirling dress and asked if I could special order some fabric for it. She loved this Japanese imported Little Red Riding Hood fabric paired with another Japanese apple print. This is the result. The bodice was drafted from a tunic in an ottobre. I lengthened the sleeves, added length and width to the bodice and added a self drafted hood. It also had tie back to give a more fitted look. The skirt part is a six flounce redondo. My daughter is the same size and the customer was fine with her modeling the dress for some photos.

Thanks for looking!

Gecko Unders

Two pair of boxer briefs for the older brother and one for the younger one (to be just like the older one). The print is fun for boys with geckos and frogs.

Katie Jump Rope Redondo

Redondo set using a plaid and floral from the Katie Jump Rope line by Free Spirit. The coordinating blue give a little pop to the outfit.

Chocolate Lollipop Twirls

This line of fabric is just too much fun. I have done some many variations using the fabrics in the Chocolate Lollipop line by Free Spirit. Here is a redondo set. It does not show well on my dress stand. It is a size 8 and just a little too big for the stand.

This is the same skirt with a pink top. The placement of the flower on the shirt was too high. It will be included as an extra top for the skirt.

Thanks for looking!

Redondo - Olivia the Pig Style

Two little ladies who love Olivia the Pig will have fun twirling in these redondo skirts. The black & white fabric says Olivia.
