Storybook Dress

Leslie is closest to me in age of all my sisters. Because of this we share a lot of the same memories. (Pictures of each of us as a child usually includes the other.) One of our favorite books as kids was a book called The Big Tidy Up. It's about a girl with a really messy room. Her mom decides that if she doesn't want to clean it up, she'll make her live in it indefinately.

We've been talking for awhile about trying to recreate a dress from this book. I mean, check out all the great inspirations it provides:

We weren't sure if we'd be able to find fabric with the right look, but Leslie found this fabric that is a darn close match to the dress below.

So here's our version of the Storybook Dress

I found this awesome button in my button stash. I have no idea where it came from, or when/if I even bought it, but I love it on this dress.


  1. Wow that is close! What a fun idea. Love the dress. So cute.

  2. What a fun idea! I think it turned out really cute!

  3. what a great match! I have that material and love it :)

  4. Even I remember that book. Really, it's one of mom's faves - that's why we all know about it. So cute!

  5. Wow! Wonderful dress, even if it didn't match the story. Good job. Hope you see this comment since the post is not brand new.

  6. i have been searching for a dress pattern like that, can you tell me the pattern you used? thanks!
