pattern: Oliver + S Fairy Tale Dress, View A size: 8 fabric: Lisette poplin print from the Spring 2012 collection and white Kona Cotton mods: piping on the sleeves and I omitted the belt and bow
a little crumpled from being worn
BK picked the fabric and the pattern. I wanted to leave the sleeves off but she insisted that the dress have sleeves. There was a brief moment of panic when she tried on the dress midway through construction and complained that it was uncomfortable under the arms. I went back and trimmed the seam allowances and crossed my fingers. Happily, there were no complaints today when she wore the dress to church!
Also, per BK, I left off the fabric belt. I still think it would look cute with something at the waist. I'm keeping my eye out at work for a white girl's belt. If I can find one before the dress is outgrown, I'll add thread chain belt loops to the side seams to help hold the belt in place.Assuming of course that BK will wear it.;)
