Roadside Embroidery

Look what I found on the way home today at a roadside tent! I stopped at the corner of Stassney and 1st, right by our favorite chicken place, El Regio. It was just too cute to pass up for E, and it was only $12.
I would love to be able to make this kind of simple dress with embroidery for C. and E. I am hoping I can copy some of the embroidery for other projects. I would have gotten a dress or a blouse for myself, but they only had kid sizes available. I’ll have to keep looking. I did find a link to a site that has a pattern for a traditional Mexican dress. The Mexican Dress has a downloadable pattern for $5. Dare I attempt this? I’ll have to add it to the list.
Here is a picture of my unwilling model.

  1. WHAT!?!?!?!?!

    Holy smokes! I want one! Are they there all the time? These are my favorite kind of dresses, and I’ve toyed with doing the Mexican Dress Pattern for ages.

    She’s so stinkin’ adorable (’cause she looks just like YOU!) 😉

  2. This was the first time I had every seen them. Maybe summer weekends? I am going to explore and see if I can find some more. I’ll keep you posted!
