Cute Little Girl Hooded Dress

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!! I hope your day is filled with joy, family, friends, and deliciousness! Here is a little something I've been brewing up!

I absolutely love the artwork by Krista from Saturated Canary. Her girls (and boys!) are gorgeous. And the possibilities with them are endless! Seriously. She originally made these with making cards in mind...I bet she never guessed I would make a dress (or two!) based off of them! :-D I plan to make more custom girls dresses too.

Every little girl needs her own phone, didn't you know?!

The girl I used on this dress is Frizzy Jynx. With her wild curly hair and attitude she immediately called out to me as being perfect for my little girl. ...Believe me when I say it takes work to tame my daughters curly hair! In the morning when she wakes up AND after her nap in the middle of the day I have to do her hair because it becomes wild and unruly.


I used puffy paint to paint in the polka dots on the headband, and the heart on the jacket, although that one is much harder to see.


The dress has a hood with ruffles around the edges, multiple layers on the skirt, ruffles at the bottom of the sleeves, and a kangaroo pocket. It's perfect for hiding little treasures in.


The skirt layers are like petals. The scoop down on the sides and come up higher in the middle of the front and back.


I'm very pleased with how this dress turned out! It's so sweet and fun. Full of things thrown together unexpectedly and turning out to be so cute in the end. Thank you Krista for your amazing artwork! You too can find her beauties in her Etsy shop. Linked up here:

  2. Thank you! I enjoyed making it, and my little girl didn't want to take it off, so I guess it was a success!
