My Little Princess

  I first saw the Regency dress pattern over at Pleasant View Schoolhouse, and purchased it a while ago.  Unfortunately, it sat untouched until this week. In an attempt to use up fabrics that have been sitting for too long, I grabbed this quilting duo of cotton florals.  While I am not crazy about the top fabric, I didn't have enough of the other to complete the dress in one fabric, and the little princess loves it, so who am I to argue!  While the dress seemed intimidating, it actually was very straightforward and the pattern is very clear.  Maybe one day I will get around to making the adult version

Wait, the pattern waited until this week? Like in you made that dress in the last two days? The only sewing skill I have mastered is sewing on a lost button. ;-)

The dress and your daughter are very beautiful!

I haven't mustered the courage yet, but I really want to order one of those patterns! I really enjoy looking at Sense and Sensibility Patterns. And daydreaming. (c;

You did a lovely job.

Cassie, I made it last week, I wrote the post over the weekend, so I guess it came out sounding funny :) But it was pretty quick to make, I did most of it in one day - in the photo it still needs to be hemmed, but I did that last night. Now I am working on a bonnet - but it's a busy weekend, so not sure when that will come together.

Anna - I loved the pattern! I ordered another one on monday because they had a cyber monday sale. I was so suprised with how easy this was to put together, compared to some other not so well done patterns I have tried. I really would love to do one for me for Pascha one year, though I never sew well for myself!
