You know how sometimes you have a pretty concrete vision for a project, and you feel like you are working toward that vision, but when the project is all done, it's nothing (NOTHING) like your original idea? Well, that happened to me on this year's Easter dresses. (And yes, I realize it's June, but I'm trying to catch up.)
My idea was gingham shirtdresses--a different color for each girl--all in the same pattern. Something like this:
But it's harder to find gingham in just the right shades than I originally considered. And then I found a fantastic twill, with polka-dotted stripes in all my favorite colors. And it coordinated quite well with the yellow gingham I had already found. So I made this bubble dress for this crazy soul.
