Orange Crush Dress

Orange Crush 1





This is the Orange Crush Dress! It will be making its way to South Africa soon! :D But before that it will be my entry for Project Run & Play Week 2 Stripes and Polka Dots Challenge.  (To see all the upcoming challenges click HERE )

Thankfully it has been extremely warm here lately so Cailey didn't have to freeze her tushy off for the pictures! ;)

This dress has  A LOT of pleats!! The front and back sides are both pleated at the neck.

And then there are alllll the pleats at the bottom! ;)



It was a super fun dress to make and I will be sharing the tutorial with you next week! :D



In the meantime, I will be linking up at Project Run & Play as soon as the Week 2 Challenge opens. LOL



OHH!! I will also be sharing a pattern test for SquigglyTwigs Designs sometime this week!!! YAY!!!! :D

After that I will be hard at work on my boy's look for the Week 3 Challenge. I think I have my fabric choices pinned down but other than that I am SOOOOOOO not sure of what I'll be doing! LOL Not good!! Not good at all!
