Question UPDATE with pic of dress! Who can make this kimono type dress? SPAM ME!

UPDATE: Sonya of Sublime Threads is so sweet -- she agreed to make a dress for Kaitlin out of my knit fabric. This is what she created for me--ahem, Kaitlin



Action shots to come -- Kaitlin has worn it three times already (her "tookie dress") but I keep forgetting to snap pics!

Y'all -- it fits her so perfectly, and Kaitlin LOVES to twirl in it! I seriously need about 6 more of these dresses.

---------------------------------------------------

Who here can sew a dress like this? I have no idea what the pattern is, but the description on the listing says:
"faux-wrap front style"


I have some knit fabric I'd love to use up --

That is a knit the dress is made from, right? I'm hoping to use up the tulips/flowers knit or maybe even my rainbow shine OOh I have some D&G knits, too!!!




My dd would LOVE a dress like that one! We have a purple cotton one from Kate Quinn Organics (true kimono though) that we both adore!

You can totally use a knit fabric. It would be nice and comfy. I really like the tulips and flowers fabric. You definitely need a custom hair clip to match too

Oooh good idea!! I'm looking through Sublime Threads' flickr gallery -- she has some really awesome knits. I'm going to check and see if she is taking any customs, too.

If sublime Threads is not available for a custom Rainbow Waters does wrap style dresses, like the smaller dress in this picture:

I love both sublime threads and rainbow waters. Both run by sweet mamas and the finished products are great.
