This little dress is so much fun. It has so many possibilities, also...ribbon, trim, ruffles, banded hemline. And the color combinations of fabric and trims are endless. It can be worn as a sundress or jumper, or even made shorter for a cute little top. The fabric in this version is from a fabric designer I just found....Jennifer Paganelli. You can find her, too, at http://www.sisboom.com/ She designs for Free Spirit Fabrics. You won't find her fabrics at a chain store. You can find them at a quilt shop or online. They cost a bit more than chain store fabrics, but this time, I will say it's worth a few extra bucks. This piece of fabric was in the mail for a couple of days and had very few wrinkles in it when it arrived. And, those wrinkles were gone within a few minutes of unpacking. They are 100% cotton and amazing, not to mention the prints. Oh well, maybe this is just me finally finding out the difference between designer fabrics and "not". I had the pleasure of speaking with Jennifer this week. She's a great lady. When you visit Jennifer's site, make sure you tell her I sent you ;). I told her I'd be spreading the word.
You will see this design up within a couple of weeks.
And....in a day or two the A-line skirt will be posted and ready for purchase.
