After a busy week of work and running to soccer and baseball practices I am happy to be having a "sew in" for Mother's Day weekend. Last night I was working on hand sewn yo yos and English Paper Pieced hexagon flowers. You can see some of my progress on those in my Instagram feed or on Facebook. (Buttons are in my sidebar.)
Today's project was this adorable little dress for my daughter. The pattern is the "Bubble Dress" pattern by An at Straight Grain. It took me about 3 1/2 hours to sew including the improv pin-tucked pleats on the bodice. The pleats were very easy. An has a link to a tutorial on them in her recent blog posts. She was a guest poster on the Birch Fabrics blog.
