Oh, Candy. Confession time. I am a sugar addict. I love candy. My favorites are in the gummy family. Jelly beans, red vines, laffy taffy, starburst, red licorice, just to name a few! So when the candy them for Project Run and Play was announced I was so excited!
I was able to be a pattern tester for this Circle Dress from Kikoi Patterns. And I knew that this would be perfect for my licorice themed dress. This pattern came together very easily and Miette adores the double circle skirt. And the bow tie. Though she constantly tries to pull the front bow tie off...not sure why.
I knew that the fabric I chose for the bodice wouldn't line up perfect for the circle skirt. So I decided to use a solid red with the striped fabric as the under skirt. And I like how it breaks it up. My husband thought it was a peppermint themed dress and it could definitely go that way as well!
Here are some detail shots. I wish I had some shots of her twirling but she is just way too fast and my camera couldn't capture it! I had a great time dreaming up this dress and I'm so happy with how it turned out.
