a springtime dress


Boy was it a challenge to get our little girl to stand still in this dress. Eric is off-camera making her laugh. This was my weekend project... my first go at a simplicity pattern that I saw first at Posie Gets Cozy. I love her selection of fabrics. I decided to challenge myself to use the bolts in my collection, I've been particularly interested in the contrast between the lower two panels, a little bit of Nicey Jane and a whole lot of Love

I wound up admiring the way the bodice came out, I think these two prints from nicey jane (heather bailey's latest line) are my favorites. They have a super sweet vintage feel and are also quite springy. What you see here is what happened when I ripped out a section of Tangerine Sun Spots. I liked it so much I put it in twice. It was just too much.

 

I made the dress from Simplicity's pattern 5695 view B, a size 2. It runs quite large.
