A Little Dress, Sewn and Crocheted (White and Purple)

Little Dress, Sewn and Crocheted - White and Purple - francenadeau.com

This is a little dress made of recycled fabric. The white top comes from a t-shirt. The flowery purple skirt and ribbons come from a pyjamas. Pure white and pale purple. Terribly soft to the touch (those clothes were washed many, many times). Perfect for the skin of a one-year-old baby.

The top has an edge of crocheted scallops. Very simply made, but sweet and charming. No finishing was required for the edge of this fabric that does not fray. And as the fabric obligingly provides holes on all its surface, inserting the crochet hook was easy.

The dress is attached at the shoulders with ribbons made of fabric. A bow always enhance the beauty of a strip of fabric, I find.

  1. A very sweet little dress France! What a beautiful touch to add the crocheted scallops. I am unfamiliar with the white fabric that does not fray and can take stitching so well. I love the dainty lavender floral paired like this!

    • The white fabric is cotton and looks like a knitted fabric. It’s as extensible as the t-shirt cotton. It’s somewhat mysterious that it indeed does not fray. It’s the same that I used for the White Clutch (I just remembered that): http://francenadeau.com/blog/white-clutch-tutorial/
      I still have a piece of this fabric, which is good as I love working with it. It has so much texture.
      I’m glad to read that you also love the pairing with the flowery fabric. And you calling it lavender is much more accurate than my “purple”. 🙂
