There’s really not much to say about this dress except it is absolutely darling. The mix of coordinating patterns is fantastic and the buttons? Oh my.
Okay, I guess I kind a little to say. But seriously. This is the cutest!
You can find a step by step tutorial for the Bias & Buttons Dress over at Caila Made.
- 1 to 1.5 yards of muslin depending on how long you want the dress and how tall your child is.
- A stack of coordinating fabrics. She used 8 different fabrics. A note on choosing colors: your fabrics do not need to match, they just need to go together. Does that make sense? Lay them all out together and if it looks pleasing, go for it. If you feel your stack needs more pizzaz, add a bold print to the mix.
- 1 package, or 3 yards of 1/4″ bias tape. You can make your own using this tutorial. NOTE: For 1/4″ bias tape, cut your bias strips 1 1/4″ wide. (For this dress she used store-bought since she had the perfect color on hand).
- 6 chunky buttons. She used three yellow and three pink because the those were the predominant colors in her dress. Her buttons ranged from 1 1/8″ to 3/4″ wide.
- A piece of 1/4″ wide elastic for the back. (Optional)
