Uncharted Territory

While I love dolling up my little lady, I had not ventured into the realm of seamstress. The three-dimensional aspect of clothing, coupled with repeatedly flipping and item inside out and then right sides out intimidated me. I bought many yards of this darling Halloween candy fabric at an inventory reduction sale, and figured its seasonal nature made it better suited for something other than a quilt that would be displayed for less time yearly than it would take to create. I decided to use Jess's Charlotte Dress and Snow White Sleeves tutorials. I added the orange box pleats in the skirt and the ribbon pull tie to the front.

While the ensemble is more tunic than dress, I'm happy with the result. If I make this dress again, I will use a zig-zag stitch on the additional seams adding box pleats created. I'm afraid that when I wash this dress, it's going to unravel a bit.
