Pom Pom Dress

I found this pretty green flower material and thought it would make a really cute dress for one of my girls. I've seen some really simple kids dresses and had a go at making one up myself. I traced around an existing dress that fitted to get the right dimensions.

 I used a contrasting striped binding to frame the dress and create  straps. (This is handy to cover all the dodgy sewing!) The mix of stripes and flowers creates a retro look, which I like. I added this fun pom pom decoration for detail at the front of the dress and more binding. I knocked this one up in one afternoon. I wish sewing for myself was this simple!
