The Carolina Dress Sew Along!

What fun are sew along?!? I love them! I have been wanting to have a sew along here for a couple of months but with the kids and other projects time hasn't been on my side but with out further waiting here comes the Carolina Dress Sew along!

I will be having the sew along the week before Mother's Day, May 2-6. so spread the word!

This Dress has a fully lined bodice and a full skirt for plenty of twirly, what little girl wouldn't love that!

The back of the dress bodice has elastic for a nice fit. The front ties come through two button holes on the back and tie into a beautful big bow that flows down the back of the dress. I will have a printable pattern up the begining of this next week for the Carolina Dress, so no figuring out how to draw your pattern. :)

To make Sweet pea's skirt more "fluffy" I put and extra slip underneth her dress. She really likes fluffy dresses!!

I used the rose fabric form the Nicey Jane colletion from Heather Baily and the tangerine dot for the bodice. I really love the colors of the fabric and the Heather Baily fabric is so soft too!

Mark your canenders for May 2nd- the 6th!
Happy Sewing!!
