Happiness is Homemade

By Petunia

Today's look is totally vintage boutique.  At least, you'd think it was if you didn't know it was 100% handmade by Ms. Mommy!  Now, I can't sew, so this DIY might be a bit off...but I thought it'd be nice for you to get to make this too.

Step 1: Buy some fabric (or ask Grandma to do it for you, like me)
Step 2: Trace an outline of your favorite dress in two parts, the bodice and skirt- adding a seam allowance, plus six inches to the skirt for gathering.
Step 3: Cut it out twice and sew it together. Add straps.

Okay, so maybe I was napping while Ms. Mommy did most of that, but it will be a good starting point for your own DIY.
As you can tell, I'm still learning my angles.  And Ms. Mommy's photography skills are no Nigel Barker's...
C' know Ms. Mommy and me just inspired you!
