Butterfly Dress

Such cute fabrics they have these days and I just don't think most people I know want a bunch of quilts, so this is a great way to mix and match the many materials into something that will get used. Plus my cute little Granddaughter will look adorable in this. 

I got the pattern from a new book I bought called, "Kari Mecca's Sewing with Whimsy."
The pattern is "Color Me Happy," and I did.

The little rick-rack flower corsage and matching barrette took me about 6 hours after I thought I was pretty much done with the dress, but they do add a lot of character to the ensemble. 

Top it off with butterfly lace appliques that I bought 
with Kathryn and Austin in Brussels and you've got the finished product.

I did have some fun making this. I started it several months ago for an Easter dress, but changed my mind so that the 3 Easter dresses would all match. 

After a couple of other pressing moves and paint jobs I was able to sit down this week and knock it out.


  1. Sooo cute! I showed this to Lex and she is super excited! Thanks for all the hard work!

  2. Wow. That's all. Just, wow.
