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:
