I said I'd make Frances another dress - I was going to make one from a pink spotty fabric I have with a nod towards being a Flamenco style dress - so ruffles and more ruffles and twirly. Before I started figuring out what I was actually going to do I made the new curtains for the kids' bedroom. There was a bit left over of the fabric and Frances decided that she would like a dress made from that.
I used the Absolutely A-line dress from the book of the same name.
I was just about to sew the side seams when Frances announced that she'd like a bow on the back.
tutorial I pinned from pattern revolution, which I think has worked out well.
I added a contrast facing, for a bit of fun.
