Springtime Dress

I had so much fun making projects for the blog hop yesterday.  I just can't get enough of our fabric lately!  After a trip to a local fabric store and checking out their remnants table, I realized the price of our fabric is actually not bad at all.  In addition, the patterns are well coordinated; whereas in the store, I was completely overwhelmed.  I came home with non-coordinating fabrics that I'm not sure I know how to use. :(

Anyways, she doesn't know this, but after reading and looking at Lyssa's fabric dress tutorial last August, I was totally inspired to learn how to sew.  Naturally, once I got my very own sewing machine, that dress was one of the first projects I did.  I used Springtime Vintage Designer Fabric.
Isn't this dress darling???  And the biggest compliment is that my daughter kept asking to wear it!

Here is a closeup of the flower.
I was very proud of myself when this dress came together.  Although later on, I figured out that I had skipped several key seamstress musts.  Oh well.  The dress still held up through the washing machine, so it's not bad, right?

Oh, I'm so glad you liked the pattern and actually followed through and made it! Thanks for the shout-out. Your blog looks great!
