The dress has been done for a couple of weeks, but I had to get elastic that would fit. This is the Croquet Dress by Oliver and S. I love their patterns. Even though the designs are somewhat challenging, the instructions are very clear, step by step.
As you can see, the fabric had a definite center, top and bottom. I could have cut out the pieces willy-nilly and it probably still would have been cute, but it was a fun challenge to place the pattern pieces thoughtfully. Like fussy cutting, for you quilters. :-) I've never done this before, and am tickled by the result!
I can't wait to see my granddaughter wearing it!
