UFO:s and Dala horses

Sometimes I start making a small collection of items and then something comes in between. In October I got a custom order for an adult skirt with Dala horses, and at the same time I decided to make a couple of jumper dresses at the same time. I bought this canvas style fabric almost a year ago... But. Then came October and November with lots and lots of custom orders, which prevented me to finish these dresses. But, now I finally took care of business and decided to finish them.
I really liked that I decided not only to use the Dala horse fabric with the curly kurbits flowers, an entire dress of that would probably been a little bit to much. Instead there is a calm section closest to the face, with a navy blue denim fabric, that has a slight shade of gray in it. The beige dress has green buttons and the wine red dress has orange buttons. Both of them matching the colors of the patterned fabric.
I've got this fabric in more colors as well, and also in organic fabric. But as you can see on these dresses that are size 104cl (4T)and 110 (5yrs) they would probably look best if the size is not to small, to be able to fit at least one full horse on each dress. Both dresses listed on Etsy, here and here.
