Dora Explorer Top Shorts Finished!!

Yay! I finished sewing the Dora Explorer top and shorts for our granddaughter Hailey. She LOVES Dora the Explorer, so she should be a happy girl when she gets this. :)

I used Butterick pattern B4776

It was quick and fun.

I changed one thing, though. The directions called for making button holes on the straps, and sewing buttons inside the flap on the front of the top. I didn't want to do that, because then, you wouldn't be able to change how long the straps are. I like it better this way, because if she needs more or less room with the straps, all you have to do is move the button.

Plus, I really like the "Ritz Cracker" buttons I found, and I want them to be seen!

Nice Dora there. Where did you buy the cracker buttons? i'm so loving them and would like to buy them later on.

Thanks! I bought those cracker buttons about 20 years ago, and held onto them until I found the perfect project. I have no idea where I bought them. You might be able to find some like it by searching on Google. Good luck!
