Barney Inspired Dress

I love this dress, this dress loves me, we’re a happy family, with a great big hug and a….

Purple. And. Green.

Barney Floral Before-100As a child of the 90’s it’s hard to see those color’s together and not think of our old pal the singing, dancing, dinosaur Barney.

This is one of those projects that even after I’m done with it, I’m still not sure if it’s a home run, but it is super comfortable! As I am transitioning from my mid to my late twenties… comfort just keeps getting more and more important! So because of it’s high comfort level, you get to see it today!

I decided to make a skirt out of the dress because the print is so bold, I thought I could tame it down a little. I cut the top portion of the dress off about an inch above the elastic. I used that inch to finish off the edge around the top of the skirt. Then I trimmed off the extra length and gave it a new hem. In total this project took less than 30 minutes which wasn’t too bad for how comfortable it is!
