Some time this spring I took Emily to Elegant Stitches, my really great local sewing shop, with me. I'm not sure why I took her since I usually don't but all of a sudden she was walking up to me carrying a bolt of quilters cotton that she wanted a dress made out of. While its pretty its not something I ever would have picked but she loved the print so we picked out a coordinate and bought enough fabric to make a dress.
Garden Party Dress. This pattern was a bit of a mixed bag. If I make it again I will not put the waist band on the back as mine did not line up well at the end of the project. I will also follow the directions for the arm binding instead of getting creative and ending up with and exposed seam under each arm. Oh well its super cute and I think it bridges the little girl big girl gap nicely at the moment.
