Wonder Woman Dress!

V has been obsessed with Wonder Woman for a few months. Do you have any idea how hard it is to find female superhero stuff? At least, V like the one that has the most merchandise…  Even then, I knew she would love a dress from Wonder Woman fabric but there wasn’t any. Avengers, Spiderman, Superman, Batman, X-Men…  Not Wonder Woman.  So when I saw this Wonder Woman fabric pop up at Hawthorne Threads, I just had to get it. And there was no question that it should be a Verona dress. I never had to think about it, it was just obvious.  I chose a coordinating Cloud 9 solid.  Honestly, I would have liked the red to be more, well, red, but it works fine.

V’s other Verona dresses were a size 3 and while she can still get them on, they’re getting small.  I switched to a size 4 and it fits exactly right.




I chose the notched rectangular cap sleeves.  Because they felt superhero-ish. And star buttons (found at Pacific Trimming in NYC) to hold the collar down.  The stars have a bit of military feel to them that goes with the superhero theme nicely.


I used a zigzag stitch at the hem because, umm, I wanted to?  I had a reason for doing it but I’ve forgotten.


I confess that the upside down Wonder Woman symbol bothers me.  The fabric is great because no matter which way you look, something is going to be right side up.  I chose to have the words “Wonder Woman” be right side up all over but that symbol.  It’s annoying me.


Eh, whatever.  V got some great reactions at school.  Her teachers probably noticed she also has a Wonder Woman lunchbox and a Wonder Woman water bottle…

    How cute!!! I love it. The design is adorable; I especially like the turned down collar! Not to mention, your daughter is beautiful. 😀

  2. […]  To make matters even easier, I already had two identical leftover rectangles of fabric from the Wonder Woman dress.  A bit bigger than required but it’s a drawstring bag.  No need to get that precise. Add […]

  3. I love this so much! We need to plan a fabric shopping trip to the city soon!

    • Thank you! And most definitely! I would love to go shopping with you. So far, I’ve only been to Mood, MJ Trimming, and Pacific Trimming because dragging the kids and the husband is not exactly the most fun…

  4. This is a great dress. I love it with the Wonder Woman fabric and the coordinating red – plus the studs on the collar. Great use of the pattern!
