Elegant Dress with panache

Elegant Dress with panache

When I saw this fabric, I thought a simple style with a little touch of color would be great fun. This may be the only one I’ve made that should be dry cleaned due to the complexity of the flower. It was fun to make my own bias binding with a little Clover Bias Binder maker. I ordered them in two other sizes, as it is so easy and looks so much better to self bias the neck and armholes. I also cover the inside waistline seam with custom bias tape, so it does not ravel or scratch her little tummy. With each dress, it is easier and faster and looks better.

I am really enjoying this new venture and am excited as my two other granddaughters are coming back to the US from New Zealand and I can sew for them too.

This is my favorite dress so far and it was totally luck that the cabbage flower ended up in the center of the top.

Let me know what you think?
