dress with quilted bodice

August's pattern for the Carefree Clothes for Girls sew-along was the dress with quilted bodice.  for the dress i sewed, i used linen (in all different shades of brown) from my fabric stash, vintage buttons & gold embroidery floss.  the changes i made to the pattern were:  i cut off the shoulder straps & added my own attaching them with vintages buttons, the quilting on the bodice was done with only vertical stitching, & the for the lining underneath i omitted the ruffle.  fun dress !
