I finally sewed for my Cadie again. I've been so busy with other stuff and I know she was starting to feel left out. So when Blend Fabrics sent me some of their new line Lolly to play with, it was perfect for her.
Whatever I made had to be fast and easy, so I ran to the store and grabbed some t-shirts in coordinating colors.
Isn't that candy jar fabric the cutest?
I sewed some of it into the skirt and made an applique for the top part of the dress with my scraps. Can you see the Deco-Fuse behind my applique?
T-shirt dresses usually have the fabric sewn directly to the shirt, but I tried something different and sewed them both to an elastic waistband. It looks a tiny bit retro and even better - the shirt will never come untucked!
I'm planning a sewing tutorial for the dress, plus a post about how to make cute appliques from novelty fabric like this. Stay tuned!

Full disclosure: Blend Fabrics sends me collections for time to time to use as I wish. I wouldn't accept the fabric if I didn't love it. :)
