I made this dress today, quite proud of myself as its my first time.
Anyway anyone got any suggestions for different fabrics, designs anything i could do/add to make it a bit more unique?

I think it would look adorable to get some cool different color decorative different buttons to put around the bottom hem. :D

I was about to say buttons too. Like those big chunky colorful buttons. :D Or maybe ribbon around the waist? Like ribbon with a bow.

POCKETS! I put pockets on pretty much all the dresses I make for my daughter. There are many differnt kinds you can do. I mostly like the round puffy pockets. DD can fit more stuff in them that way. haha



Great job btw!! <3

I think a couple pockets would be cute. Or you could even do one pocket like they put on sweatshirts. That would be cute too!
