Why "pink lemonade" when it's obviously not pink? When I was ready to start sewing it together, I realized I ran out of white thread. I am way too impatient to wait until I could make a trip to Joann's for some new thread, so I used light pink instead. So if you look really closely (in real life, you probably can't tell in these pictures), you can see little bits of pink in the seams, and everytime I see it, it makes me think of pink lemonade!
I did buy some white thread so that I could hem the dress and sew on these bows in white though..
I was inspired by this dress, and realized I had a pattern almost identical to it, New Look 6842. Then I just added the two white grosgrain bows.
I get a lot of inspiration from things I find on Pinterest. I saw this dress, and loved how it used striped fabric, but had it going horizontally on the bodice and vertically on the skirt. So I did the same thing on this dress..
Can't wait to see it on her!!
