This is a knot dress I made for an old friend. Her name is Betsy and we've been friends since 3rd grade. She now lives near Boston. Here she is. Beautiful, huh????? Well she sent me some vintage fabric (the pink rosebuds on the skirt and the big blue flowers on the bodice) and wanted a custom knot dress for her adorable daughter. I hope she likes how it turned out, I think it's adorable (more on that in a bit). Anyways, Betsy owns and runs this amazing shop, estate eclectic. She has a BEAUTIFUL blog and etsy shop where she sells unique finds. And starting TODAY, she's launching a vintage baby and kids collection in her shop!!!! Here's a sneak peak.
Stop by her shop and see all the goodies. Once they're gone, they're gone and she'll debut another kid collection in the spring. So FUN!!!! And she's also celebrating with fun posts all week. I can't wait to check it out. Now onto the dress....
Knot dresses are so fun and practical in that they are adjustable and last a bit longer than other dresses.
Beautiful purple flower Kaffe Fassett fabric I added to the vintage fabrics. I think it's a fun mix.
Label on back. I think I might start making my own labels like on here. Pretty simple and looks handmade which I love and I can make LOTS!
Also made a flower clip out of a fabric scrap, button, and snap clip. All hand sewn. NO GLUE!
So check out my lovely friend, Betsy's blog and get inspired. She has two little ones running around and gets so much done! So impressed with her and her impeccable taste.
