So, the first dress I am showing is a peasant dress I made, and I love the cute fabric I picked up at Joann's.
Gosh, those adorable owls with umbrellas!
There were so many fabric options that I could have used for accenting. It was a hard decision to make.
I decided to use two coordinating colors and do a little patchwork. I cut 2.75" squares from a bright blue and pink/pink chevron fabrics, sewed them together to form a panel for the sides alternating the squares.
I cut the peasant dress smaller on the sides to allow for the extra panel. I used some gray fabric to make the sleeves so I could add in one more coordinating fabric.
I adore this dress. And I think even Dana would be proud of my attempt at piecing together a little patchwork. My corners lined up and everything. Amazing.
More to share later.
Enjoy the spring-like weather if you got it. :)
