Hi Roadies! Jen Chesnick here with a new Fall sewing project. Foxes are all the rage this fall and I jumped on that bandwagon pretty quick. Fox Faced dresses are floating around the sewing world pretty heavy, so I knew I needed to make my girl one. I used a pattern I already had on hand, theHula Hoop by Puperita. Her patterns are some of my favorite and are easy to construct with great directions.
To create the face of the fox I printed out two bodice pattern pieces. On the second print I traced a quarter circle to create the cheek. Since the bodice is cut on the fold it will create the entire face for you. I allowed myself 1/4" seam allowance to press under the cheeks. To attach layer both bodices right sides together, pin and top stitch the fox into place. To create the nose and eyes I used the Maya Road Wood Blossom buttons. For the back of the dress I used the Mirrored Flower Buttons. No photo of the back unfortunately because well she is 3 and it was Halloween, she wasn't having it.
We finished the look off with Fox Socks fromBethany Lane our their new Fox purse. The socks! I grabbed them in my size too.
