My Stash Dress featured in Sew Beautiful

This is one of the three dresses featured in the last issue of Sew Beautiful Magazine.
I have never had such a great response to any other article I have done.
The patterns are momentarily in great demand!  It's so fun!!
Of the three, I call this my 'playful' dress.
I added fullness at the center front to give my dress a little extra cuteness.
And used the large Ric Rac to trim all around the dress.
I sandwiched the Ric Rac in between layers of the collar.
I wish I had a bolt of this fabric!! It is so cute.  It is only 36" wide so you know it's an old one.
More on this dress, next post.

I love this dress! I wish that you had a bolt of that fabric also - I would beg for some of that precious print!

When I first saw it in Sew Beautiful, I gasped at how sweet and dainty it was.

Darling! I'm "sew" glad I already have this pattern in my collection of OFB patterns! Love the ideas you have shown with it!

That fabric is so sweet. I love the little kitties on it. Did you trim the rick rack inside the collar?

I have drooled over this dress ever since I saw it. I love, love, love this fabric. It is just so sweet, and the yellow accents really add so much. You are so talented.

Oh, Jeannie! I loved all of your dresses in that article, but I think this little pink one is my favorite! It really makes me wish for more time to sew for our grandgirl- she's almost 14 months old and changes every day! I have that pattern, but I think she's too big for it now. Anyway, those dresses are too sweet. Love all your things.

Some of my finished garments are for the babies of friends. Many of them, I am keeping for future Grandchildren (I have unmarried sons) and also special garments for my Great Grands. I already have 7 Grandchildren but they are no longer little babies!!
