The other night, I was looking through some of the fabric I had here at the house, and found some of my Petal & Plume from Art Gallery. I love this line of fabric and Bitty Bee needed a new dress out of it. But what dress to make?
The new Mia's Tie-Back Top and Dress by The Simple Life Pattern Co caught my eye, I just purchased that pattern and loved the bodice of it. But I wanted a different skirt. I had the Violette Field Threads Maggie Dress for girls that I haven't had a chance to make yet and I love the hi-lo skirt on it. In my mind, Mia's bodice with Maggie's skirt was the perfect match up.
The end result was amazing!
Because both dresses have similar size bodices, there were no adjustments needed for the length, which made this a very easy project!
Bitty Bee loves anything out of Art Gallery fabrics because of how comfortable it is to wear! The fabrics are especially great for summer, because of how light and flowy they are.
And, of course, true to Texas form, it's been HOT HOT HOT for the past few weeks, yesterday I was burning up outside in a tank top and as soon as I make Bitty Bee a summery dress, the temps drop to 58! Poor girl was freezing as we were taking these pictures!
But she was a trooper and didn't complain too much about the cold.
This dress is sure to be a summer favorite, once this crazy Texas weather decides to leave winter behind for good this year!
If you haven't had a chance to work with Art Gallery Fabrics yet, I highly suggest you get a few yards and try them out. They have such a great hand and are just amazing to work with!
