Fabric: Red Polka Dot / JoAnn
Red Polka Dot Bias Tape/ Holland Fabric House
Today’s project is another top, this time from Everyday Chaos. The Gnome fabric is one of those I bought with no project in mind, it was just too cute to pass up. I wanted a project that would allow the fabric to shine because, seriously, you could use that fabric to tell a whole novel on gnome life - it is that intricate :)
You already know my favorite bias tape in all the world is the one from Holland Fabric House with lace addition so when I saw the red polka dot one, I knew I wanted a similar fabric for the yoke. JoAnn was a bit disappointing in their red polka dot selection but this imperfect polka dot was a great find in the end.
Ok, confession time: I don’t like halter tops AT ALL. They never seem to sit right on the back, so my plan here was to cris cross the back and just attach the straps to the back of the top. There was only one problem with that plan, I cut the straps much wider than Bridget did hers because I wanted the gnome fabric to show.
So when I attached them to the yoke the angle under which the straps crossed on the back was not manageable for putting it on and off.
The little didn’t mind at all, she loves this thing. I love that you can wear it everyday with just jean shorts, or dress it up with leggings and such if needed.
Daycare test: A+
The breezy design in a simple cotton fabric is perfect for the hot summer, and there is no tugging and pulling involved.
