garden party dress

I made the size 4 and shortened it but it's huge as you can see here. I wanted it shorter too so Emily could wear it with jeans or shorts. Next time I'll make a size 2 and shorter!
Thanks Corinnea for finding the burgundy solid to go with it! It's perfect.
The pattern was easy although I didn't like that there were absolutely no pictures or illustrations on how to construct it. You had to read how to construct it and that's hard to do when you're trying to listen to an audio book or Emily talk to me about kitties or butterflies. You also had to make almost all the pattern pieces yourself. This is not hard to do because it's only straight lines but it's time consuming.


These frames are from twopeasinabucket.com. I recolored the 1st one from gold. It's a Danielle Thompson (Kitchy Digitals) frame. The other two are from other designers on the two peas site. All of this done in photo shop CS3.

Cute, cute, cute!

Why oh why does sizing have to be so difficult? I am afraid the dress I made for Jess won't be right!

I'm glad the solid turned out!

the header was made from the Coraline site (in the mouse tent). I had the mice spell out the name and then quickly took a screen shot then cropped it in digital image pro. I wasn't sure if I liked it so nice to know others do!
