HERE.) I also made Jannon's Dots and Stripes Tea Party Dress. (See it HERE.) I have one more dress to do before Wednesday and it is half finished! This will be the first year that I am not delivering the dresses after the school year closes! Yippee!
As I was sewing a 'thank you dress' the other day, I realized that I have several several TQ (thank you) dresses that I have never shared on this blog. (There was over a year that I didn't blog at all when my husband was sick.) I will be sharing some of those dresses over the next week or so. Almost all of the dresses are sundresses and the moms or their daughters picked out the silhouette. Most requested Annie's Sundress and Jumper by Primrose Lane. It fits well, has a full twirly skirt, and the ties on the shoulder make the dress last for more than just one season.
This one was for Allyssa and her mommy wanted the Annie dress again. (I had her older sister two years before.) I decided to change it up just a bit and square off the bodice and then add straps for tying. The panel on the front was made with two coordinating fabrics and some cluny lace. (It really was centered properly but I took a crooked photo of the dress!) I lined the bodice in the same green fabric featured on the front and put in a one inch growth tuck.
