Today I’m happy we have Kara. Kara always leaves such sweet comments on my posts, and she was a very early follower, so of course I love her for that. Because obviously the girl has great taste if she likes me, right? (I hope you can see my tongue in cheek on that).
Hi there! My name is Kara and I blog over at Mine for the Making. I like sharing crafts, frugal decor, recipes, fashion, mommy adventures, teaching ideas, and all things DIY.
I was thrilled when Melissa invited me to be a part of this series! I love a good challenge and a little extra motivation…crafting with a purpose, if you will.
When dreaming of the sundress I was going to create, I decided to think about this summer’s trends for my inspiration. Here’s what I came up with…
My daughter is my biggest inspiration, so I made the sundress for her.
The neon colors in this fabric are not only a fashion trend but they just scream SUMMER, don’t you think?
I used a white t-shirt for the top of the dress and added on the fun fabric to maxi-fy it : )
After making the maxi, it was missing something. So I added the bloom ribbon belt.
My sewing skills are beginner-intermediate status. I’m by no means a pro. But I looooooove to sew, so I keep practicing. Thanks to Melissa, I was able to create my first ever maxi dress.
And lucky for me, this girl loves her new dress and is proud to show it off. She must be used to being photographed…she came up with all these poses on her own. Little ham.
Thanks for hanging out with me for a bit! I hope you like the Neon Little Miss Maxi!
Let’s be friends!
