Dotty Dress

Love this dot fabric by Heather Bailey!  She is quite possibly my most favoritest fabric designer.

I used it for a baby quilt recently, but today I bring it to you on a dress, paired with another Heather Bailey print.

A simple A Line dress – no sleeves, of course, because I’m scared of sleeves.

This is McCalls 8108, which is apparently now discontinued.  I narrowed it down the center, fully lined it and added a bottom border, then ran around in a field with a bouquet of flowers like a young child.

    you look fab. and ridiculous. which is ridiculously fab. we need more of that in the world.

    sleeves are not that scary. getting the armscye to fit well is scary, but actually sewin them in is no worse than easing on a waistband and a LOT easier than Drunkards Path blocks.

      Thank you! You are so sweet. All my serious pictures looked terrible. I’m definitely more comfortable with ridiculous!

      Aaaaand now I’m more scared of sleeves!

    I love your blog! I just happened to come in through the backdoor and have loved wandering through it! You are very talented!
    You remind me a lot of my daughter! I thought I’d send you her blog. Not really sure why… but I’m sure you would be friends if you ran into each other at an artshow or something! 😉

An apple a day keeps the doctor away, right? Well, crafting is my apple. It’s what I do to maintain my sanity while taking care of my family. I homeschool my three boys, ages 14, 15, and 16), am a quilter, a bagaholic, and pattern designer.  Oh – and I also like taking pictures.
