Party Dress!

I just LOVE how this dress turned out! I think it will be much easier for me to make if I need to do it again, I read and re-read the tutorial a few times.  I am one of those people that needs to understand WHY I am doing a certain part and how it works for the overall project.  I used The Cottage Home's Party Dress Tutorial.  She gives you patterns, but I needed a smaller bodice so I did got a butterick pattern and shrunk her measurements for the skirt and sash too.  I am crossing my fingers that this fits my niece!  If you have any questions about the tutorial she is pretty quick at responding or you can ask me.


  1. Adorable! Love the mix of colors and prints you used!
