Paper Fan Dress



Well this wasn't exactly the idea I had yesterday but it evolved in to this dress and I am so happy.  We are going to a community event tonight and Stella wearing a new dress will make it much more fun.  I used the free Paper Fan Dress pattern by Anna Maria Horner.  It was quick and easy though I still managed to make mistakes.  I put the button holes on the wrong side on the back so I had to have them on both sides of the bodice but you can't really see them.  However that was a little maddening.  And the ric-rac is because I didn't like my topstitching but I love the ric-rac.  I think it makes the dress.






I hope to get pictures of her wearing tonight.  It definitely looks cuter on.  It was so fun to make a dress for Stella I really want to make another.  I think I should do the tea party dress next.  I just have to decide on fabric.  This is such a fun time of year to sew clothes. 


Edited (a few hours later) - Here are pictures from this evening:

Your little girl is so cute and the dress looks so charming on her. Love the little green buttons matching the apple print on the dress. Glad you had a lovely evening!
