Doritos-Finished Muslin

Although it's not quite appealing in beige and white, here is my final muslin of Doritos:





I decided the bodice needed a little something, so I added a triangle applique and a button. I think this would work really well in bright colors.

I'm liking this A LOT. Comments? Suggestions?

I need to go buy fabric......

I think this might be my favorite dress EVER, and it's only in muslin! I can't wait to see what fabrics you choose for it.

If it looks this good in muslin, I can't wait to see the finished project! The triangles make the dress so interesting, I hardly know where to look next. Good job!

I'm liking this a LOT also! If it's half as cute in the fashion fab as it is in the muslin, it will be truly fabulous.

I'm curious -- what do you do with all your muslins?

I love this little dress-it looks like a little girl. I know that all of your ideas are great, but I was wondering about this idea for the collar-maybe think about making it as wide as the shoulder seam and sewing it in at the shoulder but allowing it to hang freely instead of being sewn down. I think it would go along with the free flowing doritos at the bottom and maybe add a little bit more balance.

That is no muslin!! That dress is nicer then some of the things you see in the stores. It is beautiful! Thank you for sharing.

It is perfect as is but if you think it is a bit plain add a big orange sash (the buttons look orange to me in the photo), then add a little orange ribbon at the hem seam (where the diamonds attach).

Gosh, I can not believe how cute this is! My daughter is older now and wont wear cute things like this anymore :(.

That's such a cool idea. I love this dress more than twirl. Especially since it was *your* idea. Btw, what do you do with those beautiful muslins? It would be really funny if you did make it in doritos like fabric -- something yellowish and cornchip like, with a salsa dip on the other side ;)

-- CD the lurker ;)

This looks fantastic - and you call it a muslin! My daugter would love to wear it just as it is. Congratulations!
