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!

I had been longing to make my daughter a scrappy dress for a while, and I finally accumulated the right pieces to make this dress!

I designed the dress myself, and love how it turned out. I can make custom versions of this dress with the fabrics of your choice in sizes from 3-8 for $50 per dress. If you’re interested, just message me on Facebook.

If you want to make a keyhole-backed dress on your own, there’s a tutorial here – I didn’t follow this method, so I can’t vouch for it, but the results look similarly cute.
