Two Fish. . .

I told you all before about how I couldn't make up my mind on which fish fabric to buy so I ended up making two dresses- this is dress number two! I figured since she was getting two dresses  her party dress should be a real, over the top fancy dress. I think she likes it (it's hard to tell with a toddler but she twirled a lot and swooshed the tulle a lot so I think it was a hit).

The fabric is a cotton print by Michael Miller I purchased it from fabric.com; a website I am becoming obsessed with because it is super easy to search for exactly what want . I added an overlay of teal sparkle tulle to make it look like the fish were under water and then topped the dress off with some yellow ball fringe that Cordelia insisted on and yellow details to match. I just love how everything came together, a little over the top, but a little awesome.

  2. Is it bad that I would happily wear all of Cordelia's dresses that you make for her?? :D
