Smurf Smurf Smurf dress
This little dress has been in my mind for a bit now. I bought the Smurf tee at Five Below this summer before we went to see the movie. I had planned to make a summer dress to wear to the movie but that just didn't happen. It sat on my shelf until I noticed that this month pattern review was having a refashioning contest. Now there are ladies taking apart lined jackets and such for that so I'm not expecting victory but it did end up being the push I needed to get going on a Smurf dress.
this tutorial but ended up changing a bunch of things to get the look I wanted so I decided to make my own tutorial for how I got my version. Like the original I started with the Olivia dress pattern. I also had 3 black shirts and a little big of light blue cotton lycra.
Then I sewed the bustle to the upper back.
here and refashioned from knee socks and a pair of bike shorts.
