Emma B's Very Hungry Caterpillar Dress and Allister's Caterpillar Shirt

Another Eric Carle dress!

 My friend Karen has four of the most beautiful grandchildren!  I have sewn for both Emma and Allister in the past.  This little outfit was a request as part of a trade for watching my sweet puppy girls (8 year old shih tzu sisters) when we went on vacation this summer.  I made an almost identical dress before for my godchild Cassidy when she was in kindergarten and Karen loved it.  You can see by looking at the picture in the blog heading that just the ribbon and rick rack trim on the apron and the binding on the hem is different.
Dress Back
 I used the Petal Knot Dress by Portabellopixie again and four different Eric Carle prints from his Very Hungry Caterpillar line referenced in the last post.
 Allister and Emma are only a year apart and both go to my school.  Allister will be in my kindergarten class this year!  I just took a caterpillar from another of the prints in the line to applique onto a purple shirt so that he can wear it when 4 year old Emma wears her dress.
Both children will be reading Eric Carle books in their classrooms so it will be fun for them to wear their special things during the year.  I would love to see how other people have used this fabric line.  I have several more items to share soon!


  1. Hi Karen! Just popping over from Sew Many Ways where I saw your darling Hungary Caterpillar dress! It is adorable! I have two young grandbabies that would love this. Where did you get that fabric?? I hope you will take a moment to visit my blog and say hello.

  2. This is the cutest ever. I would even want one. Thanks for sharing. Bonnie R.

  3. Hi :) Do you sell these dresses??
