Fun and Versatile.

I thoroughly enjoyed making this dress pattern. The instructions were well written and easy to follow. I made two dresses following the instructions, one using a contrast fabric for the overlay and one from the same fabric, with the faux placket down the front. Then I decided to change it a bit and left off the overlay and added a row of lace stitched into the front neckline seam. This would be a great pattern to play with complimentary and contrasting fabrics. It is relatively quick and simple to make up. I am looking forward to making more in this design.

Adorable Sundress

This dress is so cute, similar to Blair's meet dress. Relatively easy to make and came together quickly. I did the Velcro closure in the the back and did it my usual way, did not follow the instructions. I have made two so far, one with a single fabric and one with 2 prints. Both are adorable!
