Dora the Explorer wrap dress
This is one dot dress so soooooooo easy to make. I made it shortly after discovering Amanda’s blog and finishing the babynomade-like blanket, which inspired me to used my bias remnants to give this dress an impeccable finish: either french seams or bias binding. Amanda is a master at perfectly finishing her garments and even made me question the need of an overlocker, since she doesn’t own one. Since I didn’t use self-fabric bias and took satin ribbon for the bands, I was able to make this with less than 1 m of fabric (instead of 1,10m). Also, because I was too lazy to grade it down one size to 104, I cut a size 110 without seam allowances and sew 1-cm seam allowances. Fits.
This dress shows the beauty of wrap dresses: even a 3 yo gets a waist wearing it!
