Veggie- Dress with a watermelon pocket in the front. I had the privilege to photograph this little girl that lives in my apartment complex. I had her come over into my ´sanctuary garden´ and that where the magic begins. She just turned 6 years old. I had her put on (with her mother's help) dresses 4-6 years old. She can wear it as a top too once she gets bigger! You can adjust the straps to make them more comfortable and size the way you wanted. They ALL fit her, some are above the knee and others below the knee.
The dress is done with salvage 100% cotton fabric. The hand-dye, leaf green. It fits 5 years old to 10 years old. You could wear is a top!
Fabric was given to me last year. I was selling my veggie-dresses at the farmers market and a kind woman brought me a bin full of fabric! I was in awe! The trim at the bottom used to be a curtain! I find most of my fabrics in a store that recycles and sells fabric by the pound, and designer. I love using what is going to a landfill.
The watermelon is made with salvaged upholstery fabric. It measures 5 1/2 Width x 3 1/2 Length inches. I use a variegated colorful thread to do the outline applique.
She can put treasures she finds along the way and you can help mom bake extra goodies:-) keep them in safe in your little watermelon pocket for eating later.
