Sewing for Quilt Market - Flowergirl Dress

Spring Quilt Market Projects 2013

I love Heather Ross's book Weekend Sewing.  If you don't already own it, you should.  It includes patterns for an awesome bag, baby pants, adult clothes, and this amazing dress.  There's also a whole bunch of other things, too, but those are just the few projects that stick out in my mind.  I love the way the projects are illustrated in this book.  Sometimes hand drawn illustrations just get the point across a whole lot better than computer drawings.  There's just something in the quality of a drawn line that seems to make a lot more sense to me than reading a perfect computer drawn diagram.  (That's saying something, since my last "real job" was as an architectural draftsman/technician/CAD monkey/whatever you'd like to call a girl who draws architectural stuff on the computer all day.)

This dress is a super simple project to sew up.  It is four identical pieces for the bodice (2 for the inside, 2 for the outside), 2 straps, and 2 rectangles for the skirt.  It's adorable sewn up and goes together so quickly.
