Bandanna Dress

The 15-Minute Bandanna Dress  

How cute is this?


I found this great idea from Trey & Lucy. Tanya gives a great tutorial and makes it look sooo easy! There are a lot of people on etsy selling super cute ones too! Here is what the dresses can or should look like:
This darling one is from Fancy Pants By Jamee


A little different variation by Shelly Stout
(Shelly’s etsy shop link is broken- Shelly, if you are out there, email me so I can give you credit for this!)
Magnolia Girls has this sassy print dress:
And lastly, how cute is this one from abbysatticsatx?

Trey and Lucy’s tutorial looked easy enough so I decided to give it a try and maybe work my way up to the more advanced dresses… and here is what happened…


Mine looked like a tent on Leah- not flattering at all! I might try this again someday, but for now I will add this to our list of Craftastrophies and move on. The rest of you can keep laughing…

    Hey, I thought your dress was super cute!!! I've been thinking about trying one of these this summer, but they do look cute with a shirt underneath, so maybe I won't have to wait!

  2. 2

    All of the dresses are adorable, including yours! Hard to see the whole thing, but it sure looks like it turned out great. I think we're all too hard on ourselves. :-) I'm the same way sometimes when I make something, but I could see someone else do it the exact same way and love it.

    I've followed that tutorial also, and mine looked like a tent too! I don't know where I went wrong, but it was awful. Just awful.

    These bandanna dresses are too cute! Even the one you did. Hey, nothing looks "un-cute" on a cute little girl ! :-)

    I don't think your dress was a total fail either. Maybe it will be a little less tenty when she's a bit bigger?
