Panda Dress

This panda dress was made for my baby as a tribute to our visit to the National Zoo. She loved the pandas and so did I. Funny thing is, Gymboree came out with panda clothes at the same time and when I saw them I was so excited. I bought her panda socks and a shirt to go under the dress. New Look pattern 6768 is what I used. I changed the buttons to snaps and put metal overall hooks on the front bib. I also added pockets trimmed with rick rack. The applique is a photo that I found on the net. I traced it onto freezer paper, ironed it on the felt and cut it out. I used that cheap craft felt, I probably should have used nicewool felt. Oh, well.
