I removed the detachable apron for the picture below.
I love the look on her face! Hilarious!
And this was the moment when she realized its twirling capabilities! I caught my little lady's first dress twirling on camera! Yay! :)
I think this is the perfect fall dress. It could also be made into a really beautiful Christmas dress.
I know it can be intimidating to learn to sew from a pattern, but it is SO worth it! I picked up this pattern during one of Joann's $0.99 sales, and it was well worth every penny. I have about a zillion patterns that I've purchased from those $0.99 sales, and I'm committing to start sewing through them, one at a time. I hate just buying things and never getting around to accomplishing them.
This is the picture from the McCall's website, of the original pattern. Go buy it!
Or, I suppose I could sell you one in my Etsy shop! :)
On another note, I am currently drawing up a pattern for a trifold organizer to store all my crochet hooks and materials. I'm using the scrap fabric from this dress. It's going to be beautiful. Can't wait to share it with you!
