Getting ready for Summer!

I had a great time stitching up a Princess Aurora inspired sundress for a young lady that will be spending some magical moments with her family at Walt Disney World.

This dress began life as a Carla C's Simply Sweet dress (natural waist, scrunched elastic straps and ruffled skirt). A few modifications to create the illusion of a princess seam as well an addition of a peplum transform this sweet dress into a great dress for a precious dress to brave the hot days of summer.

I hope she LOVES it!

It just doesn't get any better than this! My friend, Carla C teamed up with a fantastic fabric designer (whom I'm now proud to call a friend as well!), Jennifer Paganelli to create a FABULOUS new pattern. The Sophie Tunic, available at You Can Make This, can be made in several different lengths as well as different sleeve lenghts. It is perfect as a cover up for the beach, or as a sweet retro inspired top. I was THRILLED to be able to test this pattern. I've got several more of these to stitch up (oh, to find the time!). The next version on my cutting table is using Jennifer's gorgeous Sis Boom fabrics! OOH! YUMMY!
