I have to admit, I'm seriously proud of my newest Addy dress. It's the most advanced thing I've done since I starting sewing, less than a year ago.
I found the pattern - Fat Quarter Pillow Case Dress - on Pinterest and the neatly bound, guaranteed-to-look-good-together fat quarter bundle at my fav fabric shop, Quilt Ventura.Then it was just a matter of
and adding the little details that make this dress uniquely Addy's. Like a ruffle, made from fabric Rachel and I found on our fabric spree this summer -
bias tape shoulder ties, a double button ornament (to mark the front since both sides are the same),
and ties at the waist, with a button on each side for decoration.
Addy is pretty particular about her dresses, so this one is a trial run. If she likes it (crossing fingers!), I'll be making more for her to wear this fall.
If not . . . . guess I'll have to talk Leia and Leanne into wearing them. Because I will be making more - while I work up the courage to try the ruffle dress next.
