Collar Dress

I loved the look of this dress from Yeppar and eyeballed the pattern for quite awhile til I ended up getting both sizes last winter.  Finally got around to making the bigger one, and it's lovely.  Didn't love having to add my own seam allowances, but once I got the hang of it, it wasn't too bad.  This size came out fairly roomy for once, loving that she'll get multiple seasons out of it.  Pretty excited to have set in my first collar!

Bubblegum Swing!

Just finished up participating in a sew along with Candy Castle for this's the bubblegum dress with a swing addition.  First time I worked with the pattern, and came out super darling!  It's a little 50's housewifey looking to me.  I also made bias tape out of the white/pink floral and it's super yummy and fun to have something unique.
