Part of the reason I started to quilt was there was no fitting involved (well at least in the end). I despise alterations and hemming but I do them if absolutely required. Sadly, there are some elements of found clothing that still have tags on them. So when I saw these cute patterns at market a year ago, I did a double think....is it really worth my time to attempt another "fitted" dress for my granddaughter(s)? This pattern is fairly unstructured so I bought it and put it on the back burner. I needed a fun project so I picked it up last week and went shopping for some cute girlie fabric.
|The Cottage Mama Daphne Wrap Dress and Top|
|Carrie Bloomston's of Such Designs for Windham Fabrics "Paint".|
We used this same collection in our latest child TV Dinner.
|Cute little dots for the yoke and lining form Michael Miller fabrics.|
|Freezer paper patterns.|
|Lining side up of the little wrap dress.|
Piping, curves, clipping, flipping and edge stitching....
|So you can see that "Paint" is a border print.|
This is the back.

Look like a smiling purple monster?
