Easter is 5 weeks away! This year the dresses that I want to make my girls are going to take a bit more time than past years, so I'm getting started on them already. This pattern is from Ottobre Design magazine, Issue 03/2012.
The fabric I picked out is organic cotton voile from OrganicCottonPlus.com. It's so soft and light. And as you can see, the front and back of this dress is covered in 5mm tucks. These aren't tiny pintucks that you can use a pintuck foot for, so I'm pressing and stitching each tuck separately. I installed a little guide on my sewing machine to help me. The tucks are not perfect, but that's okay.
This pattern calls for stitching all the tucks and then cutting out the neckline. So far so good!
And what have you been stitching up this week? It's time for our Show Off Saturday linky party!
Remember, if you decide to post your picture(s) online (like on facebook, flickr, or your blog) the linky page will let you enter a link to the page where it is so we can visit it. If it's not posted online yet, you may skip that part and upload a picture from your computer. We all can't wait to see!
Don't forget, the most clicked project will be spotlighted here next Friday - just like Ella and Nesta's Folding Envelope Heart.
I would love it if you shared our linky party on your blog... here's a button to make it easy.
And don't forget to share the love and visit some of the other fun blogs in the party.
Please, no links to items for sale. Those links will be deleted. Thank you!
