Michael Miller Gnome Dress

I have a confession to make: I love garden gnomes. I used to hate them. I thought they were cheesy. Well, I still think they are cheesy but maybe that's why I love them so much. Over a year ago, I spotted this fabric on fabric.com. I loved it, but it was on back order. Forever. Seriously, it was on back order for about 6 months. When I went back to check, they had moved the date out even further. When they finally got it in stock, I ordered some! I was really surprised that my daughter loved the fabric as much as I did, but she was thrilled to have a 'mushroom dress'. Here it is:

The collar is out of a thrift store sheet and....rick rack! Are you surprised? The buttons are these super awesome green flower buttons that really made the dress. I begged them from Mom for my birthday and have been holding on to them for the perfect time. And the accessories? Brought to you by Fruit Loops and her Sunday School teacher.


  1. You and your rick rack :) The dress is adorable.

  2. I think I might need help. Its getting ridiculous!
