Pretty In Purple

Remember the ladybug quilt I recently finished for the hub's co-worker's newborn niece?

Well she decided that the newborn's big sister ought to have something too, so last week I made her a little dress.

I'm not too fond of making non-quilt things because I always think things turn out looks like I sewed them in the dark. But this dress is super easy so I didn't mind. The little girl it's for loves purple so that made the fabric choice rather simple.

I think it's well-documented that I love dots.

I added some lace to the top and bottom because without it, I thought it looked far too boring.

The aunt's thrilled with it, so hopefully the little girl (whom I hear is preeeetty picky!) likes it too :)

It's gorgeous! Did you gather that top on your own or was it that pregathered stuff? I always want to try the elastic-thread-in-the-bobbin method but I'm skeered.

Audrie, that definitely does NOT look like you were sewing in the dark! I'm green (purple?) with envy at your skill!

i absolutely love it and i'm sure the lucky girl it's for will too.
you should consider trying non-quilting things more often, you're good at it!!!
