Another fun touch: some crocheted little flowers and a butterfly near the hem. Abby noticed this detail right away!
The dress came together really quickly. One reason I like this dress style is that it affords so much room for creativity. I only had 3/4 of a yard of fabric, so the “dress” is really more of a tunic-length.
Now, let’s talk about this amazing fabric! It’s the Princess and the Pea print from Heather Ross’s first Far Far Away line. Do you grieve for that line as much as I do? What I wouldn’t give to have it reprinted!
The fabric is a double gauze, beautifully lightweight and easy to sew. The sleeves are from a Michael Miller dots print. This blue is one of my favorite colors right now.
Ok, that’s all for now! More sewing pictures to come. Thanks for reading friends!
