This shirt is made of two different prints on cotton with medium rick-rack in Dark Banana. I love the mix. The purple fabric is so cute and the geometric coral fabric is such a contrast to the free form shapes in the purple. I love this shirt.
|I got my head stuck in one of these at Disney when I was a little girl - the dumbo ride to be exact - so fear was coursing through my veins as I took this picture.|
The back is really cute and is one of my favorite parts. It consists of two buttons (which are by far my favorite things on this shirt...so weird) which close the top of a little peep hole in the back, which is covered in rick-rack.
The buttons are glass fragments that just shimmer with every color in this entire shirt. They are beautiful and the pictures do not do them justice. You really have to see them in person.
To make the button loops, I found this great tutorial at YSolda.com. It was perfect for this shirt. I just had to use embroidery floss and the little knots around the loop make for a very sturdy button hole. Super easy to make.
I also made a bow for this shirt. This one is for when I put her hair in a ponytail and I'm making two more for pig-tails.
This bow consists of amethyst satin ribbon that is 1.5" wide, 3/4" wide flexi-lace hem tape in sweet peach, the medium dark banana rick-rack and a rosette made of 5/8" wide amethyst satin ribbon. Too cute!!!
