Dress #2

Finished my second dress for Grandmommy's contest over at Big and Little Creations today!

Let me just say this; I am NOT a seamstress. My handstitching is pretty terrible and so I apologize for the glaringly obvious and glaringly bad sewing on this dress. My second dress was a purple polka-dotted number with red shoulder straps. I'm not a huge fan of those two colors together, but I felt like I needed to use the color palette I'd been given so this is what happened.

Technically we were supposed to *decorate* the dresses, not completely redo them, so I'm kind of stretching the definition of "decorate", here.

My hot glue game is not that hot these days, but Kohl's giant Pullip head is a little hard to get around. That Made to Move Barbie body though, poses like a champ!

Edit: For those of you interested, this is the original pair of dresses I was sent!


  1. Oh it looks a lot better in different lighting!

  2. So cute! I love the ruffles and lace!

    1. Thank you! It was an adventure wrangling all that!

  3. I love the colors! You did just what you were supposed to do! Start with the basic dress and go from there!
