mini Boden Dress Hack!

I've spent my fair share of money on mini Boden stuff.

I felt that I earned this one. 

Saw this dress, loved it, and figured I could recreate a version of it for a lot less than $54. 

Here goes: 

Buy a dress. I got mine at Target for $9.99. It shrunk a ton, so size up!

Draw your flower. I was in a hurry, so I only did one. 

Trace onto fabric. (The purple pen disappears.)  I used old shirts from around the house.

Cut flower and sew lines. They look like whiskers.

Trace all other pieces onto fabric.

Stitch lines onto center piece. (Hindsight: make them smaller)

Iron pieces onto Wonder Under.

Assemble and iron together.

Sew onto dress.

Iron and stitch leaves on. 


 Not an exact match, just a quickie version. 

Again, the dress was $10 and it took me about an hour.

I might just make another one!
