Seahawk Dresses

Another holiday project was a dress for my granddaughter’s birthday. Being huge Seattle Seahawk fans, my daughter and I thought this would be fun for all!

I found two Seahawk prints and two coordinating prints, one a green dot, the other in white. All 8-year-old girls love to *twirl* so I wanted ruffles. The shoulder straps were a bit long (I turned them under and tacked in place), but that will allow for long-term use! The waist also was a bit big, so I added ties (not pictured) to snug it in.

Paired with a matching green t-shirt, it turned out darling! And, she loves it!

Of course, we could not leave her 12-year-old sister out, so I made a skirt for her. Again paired with a matching green T-shirt, it was a real hit!
