Custom girl’s reversible dresses, part 2

I modified my size 7 pattern to a size 4 (ish) and a size 2t (or so), for the two custom dresses I’m working on.

All four total “sides” of the two dresses are now at least cut out, and some pieces are even sewn together 🙂

The above photo is the four bodices… The Lightning McQueen dress is my kids’ favorite, and one of my favorite things I have made, ever. The kids told me I should make “One hundred and one thousand” like it. Anyone want a Lightning McQueen dress?

I’m working on two adorable versions of my girl’s reversible backless appliqued dress right now, and I couldn’t wait to share the fabric selections.

The first dress will be “Toy Story” themed on one side with accents of the green-striped fabric and blue star fabric; The other side will feature the pink froggie fabric and have accents of the green stripes and pink flowers. I’m not sure what I’ll applique on this one – trying to decide between a rocket, a sheriff’s star, a flower or a frog. Too many cute options!

The second dress will be “Cars” themed on one side and and have the red and blue flowered fabric on the other, with accents of the red and blue starred fabrics on both sides. I’m thinking of doing a car applique on this one.

I’m looking forward to seeing how these both turn out!
