I'm So Excited and I Just Can't Hide It!

Why am I so EXCITED?! One of my dresses made it through to the finals of the Design Challenge! WhooooHoooo! There was a total of 154 entries to the contest and the judges couldn't narrow it down to the intended 10 so there are 15 dresses that were chosen to be voted on by YOU (the link to vote is at the bottom of the page)! I am so honored to be one of those because all of them were fabulous! Here is the Chicken Nuggets dress and the story behind the name.
What a strange name for a dress…huh? The dress was inspired NOT from the food chicken nuggets, but the goldfish. My daughter chose to name her 4 goldfish “Chicken Nuggets.”

About the dress:

Pattern used:

The top of the dress is made from an old T-Shirt.

The bubble skirt was added to pattern piece C. C is the "anchor" for the bubble.

Fabric: The top is made from an old T-shirt and the goldfish fabric is from This and That from Japan. I absolutely LOVE the fabric! The pictures don't do it justice.

The crisscross back was later changed to halter back (seen in pictures).

The goldfish bowl was made from vinyl PVC and inspired by LBB's snow globe tutorial.

The goldfish in the bowl were cut out from the fabric and made into appliques and the seaweed was hand painted using Jacquard fabric paint.

The tie around the waist and bias/halter were made from bright, red cotton fabric.

Some of Carson's favorite activities with Chicken Nuggets are...
