I made a few changes. A few weeks ago I walked into Gymboree and saw this dress. It was adorable but sold out in Mila's size. This dress was my inspiration. I pared up my inspiration dress with some fabric I was given for my birthday this summer and
Whaaa Laaaa- a little hang out hoodie dress was created.
Gymboree is all about appliques so I thought I would follow suit with my favorite animal. I purchased this applique from my very favorite embroidery design shop Hang to Dry Applique.
When I first started sewing I was so inspired by Farbenmix. Farbenmix is a German pattern shop that really creates some amazing designs. They also use a lot of appliques, ribbons, bows, etc... A lot of there hooded patterns include a long hood. Not sure if there is a special name for it, by I used that type hood with this dress.
I also gathered the bottom of the dress and added a band for a bubble look. It really turned out fun and cute I think : ). Here are a few more photos...
Thanks for viewing : )
