The Girl’s Stripwork Peasant Dress

For The Boy's 4th birthday party the theme was Airplanes and Helicopters. I had nearly two fat quarters of this cute juvenile print:

After a trip to The Intrepid Thread, I had a half dozen lovely blender fabrics to go with it.

For The Girl, I had decided to make CKC's Jewel's Stripwork Dress. It's less detailed than some of the dresses I've made, so I thought it would go together quickly and I was right. It's also neat that there are a lot of options, three sleeve lengths, bottom ruffle, sash, not to mention I could make this exact style but just use a different number of fabrics. Since I had 6 fabrics I wanted to use for the skirt portion this time I just did 12 panels (instead of 14) for a slightly less full skirt. I'll definitely be making this dress again!

Thanks for taking a look at one of my 2014 Q3 Finish Along Goals. Take a look at what The Boy wore.
