Little Mermaid tube dress for LJ 2014 by Speattle
I almost feel guilty posting this. I barely did any sewing. This is a length of pre-shirred, pre-hemmed yardage that I got on sale + a coupon for very little money. All I did was sew a seam up the back (well, okay...I did a FRENCH seam) and make two quick straps to go over the shoulders. Oh, I added some pre-formed ribbon rose bows to distinguish the back from the front.
Easy-Peasy and perfect for a three year old girl who is an Ariel fan. Nice and cool for summer. This little girl loves to wear dresses and needs casual ones for everyday playtime. While complicated sewing and construction is admirable, sometimes fast and simple is just what is needed.
The straps are made from some leftover swimsuit fabric, so they have a bit of stretch and are very soft on the skin.
