The Moustache Mustache Dress

/ mustc

 But it is a moustache dress!
I have been so busy working on my head to toe looks for project run and play.
I was testing out an A line pattern I drafted for Lily .
She loves all things mustache or moustache.
So how do you spell mustache?

 Stay tuned this week for tutorials on installing a bias binding neckline and an exposed zipper, two techniques I used on this dress.
And don’t forget to stop by Friday for my photos for the first PR&Play challenge!

The pattern is a little big so I have adjusted it since making this dress.
We bought this cute mustache fabric on our trip to Portland at a store called Cool Cottons which sells quilting cottons.
It’s a pretty little shop in an old craftsman house.
Have a great week!
