A Dress for Hannah

A friend contacted me about making a dress for a young lady she knows.  The young lady wanted a  dress made from a fabric with lavender and green circles or dots.  Hmmm, now this request was quite a challenge.

I was quite surprised when I found these 2 fabrics:

Next came the pattern selection.  She decided on a cute summery dress with a full skirt trimmed with a ruffle, short sleeves and a round neckline with a high yoke.  All of this is accented by a raised waist.

The final product came out really cute.

The dress is made using the fabric with circles and the bottom ruffle is made using the floral fabric.

The waist panel and side ties add definition to an otherwise plain dress.  I love the eyelet on the sleeves.

The ruffle softens the look of the dress and makes it more feminine.
I was very pleased with the finished product and I hope Hannah loves her new dress.
