O.K. so I’m sure you’re wondering, “What the heck is a donut dress?” Let me explain.
My mom lives on an island off the coast of Rhode Island and among other things, she owns a donut shop. My grandmother started making the donuts 59 years ago and we’re still making them.
As they say in these parts… they are “WICKED” good!
They’re called Payne’s Killer Donuts and the logo is this little scary looking donut guy.
I grabbed a killer donut shirt and some knit fabric scraps and started planning a dress.
I love the exposed serger seams and now that I finally have a serger I was psyched to give it a go.
I also lucked out because I found an old cover-up with a lettuce hem around the bottom and I was able to use that for the sleeves. I know that I should be able to make this myself with my serger but I haven’t tried it yet.
The girls love the dresses because they are colorful and the knit fabric makes them super comfy too.
P.S. Here is my mom acting like a nut while I’m trying to take donuts pictures!
