April Sewing Challenge Day 18. Appliqued Party Time Wrap Dress

Hello and welcome to Day 18 of my April Sewing Challenge!  I’ve pledged to list one new item in my Etsy Shop for every weekday this month and I’m getting close to the end!

Today’s entry is yet another one from my UFO (unfinished object) pile which is a great feeling getting them completed and hopefully out the door!  I have big plans of redoing my sewing room, so the less stuff I’ve got to move around, the BETTER!

This little number is a reversible wrap dress from Wink Handmade.  Sweet, easy to sew and reversible!  Gotta love a reversible dress!


I used a super soft, fine wale Robert Kaufman Corduroy in a beautiful shade of Robin Egg blue, with a Michael Miller cotton cupcake motif on the other.  This is a size 12 months, and it just screams FIrst Birthday to me.  Image

I thought it needed a little something-something on the corduroy side to jazz it up, so I appliqued some balloons with mini ric rac strings.


Every girl needs a good wrap dress, and this is two dresses in one!  The cupcakes are so cute and cheerful.  On the bright blue, they really pop 🙂


Satin ribbons on the inside and outer chest act as closures–no pesky buttons or zippers to sew, which is always a bonus for me!Image

I think I’ll keep with the UFO theme for tomorrow–why not, I’m on a roll!  

Thanks for stopping by!  See you tomorrow!
