Spring Dress

Ok, it’s not for spring but this fabric screams spring to me. It was so cute I had to get it. Isn’t that what we all say regarding a fabric we love? I have been taking my time on this dress; serging (overlock stitching) all my seams, topstitching where I can, and adding a pretty pink bias tape to the neckline. I was going to do a ruffle on the neck but decided against it. It’s just as well because I couldn’t find the pattern piece for it (I am partially using Simplicity 1547).  I ordered a wheel tracer that doesn’t cut so I can preserve future patterns I buy.

Adding the bias tape to the neckline. It was a cinch!

Adding a bit of tulle! I have been wanting to try this.

 

**UPDATE** here are some almost finished photos!! I am gushing!! It’s looking beautiful so far. I wanted to finish it tonight however I tired and decided to quit once I got the sleeves done.
