THE PATTERN// Paper Fans, size 4. Free pattern ~ gotta love that! I've been wanting to try this sewing pattern ever since it was released in August 2012.
THE FABRICS// skirt: gray with white polka dots, Michael Miller Ta Dot, bodice: yellow with tiny white raindrops, Hoodie's Collection "Raindrops" for Timeless Treasures Fabrics, hem: solid yellow cotton and red grosgrain ribbon
THE SEWING// a little more time consuming than I thought it would be, I like the waist detail and how it is constructed. For the buttons holes I used this tutorial (making a button hole using the zigzag stitch).
Bonus points to me as I only used materials from my stash :)
This dress was made for and will be donated to Dress A Girl Around the World.
Happy Tuesday and see you tomorrow for more polka dots...
