One of these days I plan on trying another dress pattern but I think this makes my fifth geranium dress. I guess I'm getting my money's worth! Though I think I've only made one that doesn't have a major error (user error - I don't blame the pattern at all!) If you look at the photos, you might think the mistake has something to do with the seam between the bodice and the skirt - but that is minor. The real mistake is that I forgot that you have to cut both a back and a front for the skirt and I didn't realize it until after I finished the bodice. Yes, I know I could have just used other fabric (I didn't have enough left of this one) but I wanted to use this fabric and I figured I might as well try it. Well, it isn't exactly the geranium - but it still works!
I didn't think I had been able to get any good photos of the dress the first time my 2 year old wore it, so I took more photos the second and third time and then realized that I actually had quite a few to use. So here are a few more . . .
Hm, is this last photo collage totally bizarre with the two half pics on top of each other?!?! I can't decide what I think.
I used fabric from a new line coming soon from Birch Organic. It is Acorn Trail by Teagan White who also designed one of my favorite fabric lines last year - Fort Firefly (see the pillows I made with it here.)
